Megastars To Rock The World In Giant Live Earth Concerts

Madonna, Genesis and the re-formed Police will top a galaxy of stars rocking the world against climate change in seven mammoth concerts around the globe on July 7, organizers said Tuesday.

More than 100 acts will perform in the giant 24-hour Live Earth concert relay -- the brainchild of former US vice-president Al Gore -- spanning Sydney, Tokyo, Shanghai, Johannesburg, London, Rio de Janeiro and New York.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers and Genesis top the bill at London's Wembley Stadium while Bon Jovi, The Police and Smashing Pumpkins will headline the concert at New York's Giants Stadium, organisers said.

"Live Earth -- the concerts for a climate in crisis", dreamed up by politician-turned-environmental campaigner Gore, are intended to highlight the threat of climate change.




Organisers hope the concerts will raise awareness of the issue just as the 1985 Live Aid concerts raised awareness of starvation in Africa. They aim to reach over two billion people on television, radio and the Internet.

In London, Duran Duran, the Foo Fighters, the Black Eyed Peas, Keane, Snow Patrol, Bloc Party and the Beastie Boys will also perform at the 90,000-seater newly-redeveloped Wembley stadium.

Razorlight, Corinne Bailey Rae, Damien Rice, David Gray, James Blunt, John Legend and Paolo Nutini are among the other confirmed acts who will take the stage.

The New York concert features Kanye West, Roger Waters, Dave Matthews Band, Kelly Clarkson, Fall Out Boy and Melissa Etheridge.

They will take the stage in the 80,000-seater Giants Stadium alongside Alicia Keys, Ludacris, John Mayer, Akon, AFI, Rihanna and KT Tunstall.

"By attracting an audience of billions we hope Live Earth will launch a global campaign giving a critical mass of people around the world the tools they need to help solve the climate crisis," Gore said.

"We hope the energy created by Live Earth will jump start a massive public education effort.

"Live Earth will help us reach a tipping point that's needed to move corporations and governments to take decisive action to solve the climate crisis."

Starting in Sydney and ending in New York, the event will deliver a call to action and the solutions needed to answer the call, organisers said.

"This monster line-up will ensure Live Earth meets our goal of bringing together people from around the world to combat the climate crisis," said Live Earth founder Kevin Wall.

"Live Earth will not only span all seven continents, but the musicians who have answered our call span multiple genres and generations.

"Live Earth will be a monumental event both in terms of entertainment and in turning the tide against global warming."

Proceeds from the concerts will go towards a foundation to combat climate change. Tickets for the London gig will cost 55 pounds (108 dollars, 81 euros).

The other Live Earth concerts will take place at Sydney's Aussie Stadium, Tokyo Stadium, a Shanghai venue to be confirmed, Johannesburg's Cradle of Human Kind and Rio de Janeiro's Copacabana beach.

Gore is the author of a bestselling book on global warming "An Inconvenient Truth," which was made into the blockbuster documentary which won a pair of Oscars in February.

The last mammoth international concert series was Live 8 in July 2005, designed to pressure leaders from the Group of Eight industrialised nations to change their approach to poor countries.

It took up the baton from the unprecedented Live Aid, held at Wembley and at JFK Stadium in Philadelphia in the United States.

Well we knew this wouldnt be far behind. Nevermind that this is the coldest April on record or for at least the last 113 years. Nevermind that the Democrats truly believe this is more important than the GLOBAL WAR ON TERROR, we have to go Green because NOW, IT'S GOING TO BE A NATIONAL SECURITY ISSUE!! Not Terrorism anymore folks! NO! It's Global Warming that will kill us all before the Terrorists do!! Are these people truly for real? And they want money!! LOTS OF MONEY! OUR MONEY! For this crap that isnt and hasnt been proven to be the least bit scientifically acurate at ALL! I am SO NOT paying for this.

I'm glad nobody I'd want to see is in the line-up. That way I won't feel I've missed anything when I don't go. :-)

To bad the concert's arent free and serve free drink's and food, it might be worth it to hang around for a few minutes on the Liberal Dime fore a change but no such luck.

I posted about this back in Feb. when I first read about it at Drudge:

Rock and Roll Out the Message
I like music. Particularly Rock music. Mostly classic rock and anything with heavy blues influence. Some newer stuff. Whatever. But the musicians themselves I'm liking less and less as they jump on every freaking 'crisis of the moment'. Of course from my previous post you should know my stance on global warming. Well, I found this "Climate change concerts 'to dwarf Live Aid'"... on Drudge Report this morning and almost fell out of my chair.

Hey, they want to throw a concert, I'm sure there's plenty of people willing to drop a paycheck to see it. And that's their business. I just hope the majority go for the show and NOT the message. Unfortunately, the same dopes still willing to shell out the kind of bucks it takes to go to these shows also believe the crap these a-holes spew between sets.


(there's more uncensored in the post)

I hope some of the dissension starting to be heard tempers the turnout. Not likely, But I can dream can't I?
