Bono, Steven Spielberg and Ted Turner are among the nine nominees of Mikhail Gorbachev's Man Who Changed The World Award.

The award will be announced by the former Soviet leader on March 30 at the Royal Albert Hall in London, during a celebrity charity concert to celebrate his 80th birthday.

“This is an award for those who have shown themselves to be people capable of changing the world for the better,” said Gorbachev. “Each of the award nominees already made a big personal contribution to the development and changing of the world we live in for the better.”

The concert will be hosted by Sharon Stone and Kevin Spacey, and will feature performances by Bryan Ferry, Shirley Bassey and German rockers The Scorpions.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Israeli President Shimon Peres, London Mayor Boris Johnson and former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger are reported to be attending.
