Ex Beatle Paul McCartney, U2 singer Bono, and Sting have been invited by Peruvian entrepreneurs to sing in Machu Picchu in July 2011.

The world-known rock stars would sing during the centenary celebrations of the scientific discovery of Machu Picchu.

The announcement was made yesterday by Carlos Canales, chairman of the Tourism National Chamber (Canatur).

Canales said that McCartney has shown interest but confirmation will depend on scheduling since the ex Beatle is currently world touring.

Sting, ex singer of The Police, and Bono, leader of Irish band U2, have also been invited to participate in the anniversary celebrations.

“We want to show the mixture, the syncretism of Peru’s millenary culture with modernism, bringing an international singer that is admired in the world and that can perform in a scenario that also belongs to the world,” said Canales to Andina.

Canales added the concert would take place on July 7, 2011.
