Live Earth to Be Biggest Concert in Earth's History
Posted on July 6, 2007Be sure to tune in to the fabulous concerts that former Vice President Al Gore has spent so much time organizing. The concert will happen over a 24 hour period on 7-7-07, starting in Australia and moving on to many cities, such as London, Shanghai, China, Germany, Rio de Janero, Antarctica and Washington, D.C. The event is not to raise money (although the cost of the event is covered by donations and ticket prices). The point of the event is to raise awareness of Global Warming.
The lineup of performers is all-star: Jon Bon Jovi, Tricia Yearwood, Garth Brooks, Duran Duran with Justin Timberlake, Shakira, Fall Out Boy, John Mayer, Lenny Kravitz, The Black Eyed Peas and just about everyone who's anyone in music will be there. Even legendary band Spinal Tap is scheduled to perform. We hope they do "Stone Henge"! Vice president Gore told Larry King that there will be surprise performances, as well. Madonna will close the concert at Wembley Stadium in England, which is going to be amazing.
The concert kicks off tonight when 7-7-07 starts in Sydney Australia. MSN will be streaming the entire concert live, which is the best way to see the entire thing -- especially for American viewers who want to see the concert from Wembley Stadium in England, which is going to rock. For American viewers, NBC will broadcast highlights and will cover the concert from Giants Stadium in New Jersey starting at 7:00 p.m. Eastern time on Saturday.
