First ever World Cup in South Africa kicks off in style

South Africa's first ever World Cup has kicked off with a huge celebration concert held at the enormous Orlando Stadium in Soweto. On the eve of the first game between South Africa and Mexico thousands turned up to watch local and international stars perform in what was the first ever World Cup music event.

Black Eyed Peas performed 'I got a feeling' and had the whole crowd bouncing and cheering. The crowd braved freezing night time temperatures to enjoy performances from Alicia Keys and Shakira as well as local artists such as the Parlotones, John Legend and Angelique Kidjo.
There were appearances from past and present football heroes as well as a video montage of Nelson Mandela. The diverse crowd created a fabulous atmosphere as the FIFA World Cup 2003 in South Africa kicked off in style.
In just a few hours “Bafana Bafana” kick off their World Cup campaign against Mexico at the 94,000 capacity Soccer City Stadium in Johannesburg.  The stadium which looks like a calabash (an African storage pot) will host a 40 minute opening ceremony with performances from R Kelly and likely appearances from President Zuma and Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
