LiveEarth is a series of megaconcerts which will take place all over the world - USA, Europe, Japan, Australia, China - and feature some of the biggest music stars like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Madonna, Beastie Boys, The Police, Dave Matthews Band, Pussycat Dolls and many others. The concerts should raise awareness about global warming and climate change, and it might even affect climate itself with all that gas-guzzling air-polluting cars gathering at the actual shows.
As far as live coverage goes, MSN has exclusive rights in 24 countries, and they’re working with ControlRoom, the organizers of Live 8, to make sure it all goes smoothly. The shows will be available live on LiveEarth website, and up to eight shows will be broadcasted simultaneously. That’s right, kids, you’ll be able to hear Enrique Iglesias and 7 other artists wailing about the state of global climate at the same time!
