Live- Earth Day

The Live Earth concerts are tomorrow, to raise awareness about climate change, and help reach a political and social tipping point on the climate crisis.

The concerts were organized by Al Gore and Kevin Wall, and have acts on all 7 continents (yes, that includes Antarctica where the performance of an all- scientist rock band will be broadcast via satellite).

The set list is impressive to say the least: John Mayer, Akon, Kelly Clarkson, The Police, Dave Matthews Band, Fall Out Boy, AFI, Kanye West, Melissa Ethridge, Bon Jovi, Ludacris, Taking Back Sunday, Keith Urban, KT Tunstall, Alicia Keyes, Roger Waters, and the Smashing Pumpkins... and that's just in the US. There will also be performances in London, Johannesburg, Rio de Janeiro, Tokyo, Shanghai, Sydney, and Hamburg.

The NBC family of networks is broadcasting the shows live all day, culminating in the US show from 8-11pm on NBC, with limited commercial interruption.
