Live Earth is a monumental music event that will bring together more than 2 billion people on 7/7/7 to raise awareness about global warming. With 24 hours of music across 7 continents, and performances by more than 150 of the world's top musicians, Live Earth will engage, connect, and inspire individuals, corporations and governments to take action to solve the climate crisis.
The concerts will hit Sydney (I sooo sooo wish I could have said Auckland)
With bands including... Crowded House and Jack Johnson. UK has a huge lineup including Beastie Boys, Foo Fighters and the Chili's. US has the recently reformed Smashing Pumpkins, old skool bands like the Police and Bon Jovi and new crowd pleasers like Fall Out Boy. Other venues are still to announce their bands.
This is huge! I haven't seen anything like this since the Beastie Boys organised the Tibetan Freedom Concerts.
Now now do we get New Zealand and New Zealand music a part of this?
Lol... "Raise awareness." Why I never heard about Global Warming or other environmental issues. At least ten times a day. For the past ten years.
The truth is that its an excuse to party and feel superior. I think I'll avoid it, thanks. I got enough smug in me.
