Live Earth

7/7/07--Live Earth.

I missed watching the shows live. I am really disappointed that I didn't see them live on TV as they actually happened.

Live Earth, a worldwide concert raising awareness for global warming, hosted free concerts with famous musicians to play at different venues all around the world.

In New York: Smashing Pumpkins, Kelly Clarkson, AFI, Bon Jovi, Akon, John Mayer, Kieth Urban, Alicia Keys, Fall Out Boy, KT Tunstall, Taking Back Sunday, Ludacris, Melissa Etheridge, Kanye West, and Dave Matthews Band.

In Australia: Jack Johnson, Crowded House, John Butler Trio, Wolfmother, etc.

In Japan: Linkin Park, Xzibit, and Rhiana.

In Germany: Shakira, Snoop Dogg, Enrique Iglesias, Chris Cornell, etc.

In the UK: Genesis, Razorlight, Snow Patrol, Damien Rice, David Gray, Black Eyed Peas, Duran Duran, John Legend, Corrine Bailey Rae, Keane, Metallica, Spinal Tap, James Blunt, Beastie Boys, Madonna, Foo Fighters, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

In Brazil: Macy Gray, Pharrell Williams, and Lenny Kravitz.

I think it's incredible that we're using music to promote awareness. Al Gore is doing such an amazing thing: reaching the public about global warming through video documentary and nationwide concerts. Al Gore for president.

Check out the website or some live footage; it's really good.

Of all the concerts listed above, which one would you have wanted to witness? (My vote is in the UK--you can't beat Chili Peppers, Foo Fighters, David Gray, and a little Madonna or Metallica to really kick the mood).
