LIVE EARTH CLIMATE CONCERTS
Live Earth is a monumental music event that will bring together more than 2 billion people to combat the climate crisis. Live Earth’s 24 hours of music across 7 continents will deliver a call to action and the solutions needed to answer the call. Live Earth marks the beginning of a multi-year mass persuasion campaign led by The Alliance for Climate Protection to move individuals, corporations and governments to take action.
In anticipation of overwhelming demand for tickets and to ensure that everyone gets a fair opportunity to participate in Live Earth, and minimize ticket misuse, the event organizers will be allocating ticket sales by ballot. Registration for the opportunity to purchase two tickets per person will be done online here. Ticket applicants will also be given information on how they can help combat the global climate crisis.
Live Earth Tokyo update as reported from the ground:
Twenty year old Japanese pop star Ayaka moved many at Live Earth Tokyo to tears, telling the captive audience, “We now hear a lot about global warming. This is really everyone’s business.” Ayaka, who is known for her smash hit “I Believe,” continued, “There are many things we can do. I want everybody to take action.” Ayaka, the third performer on-stage in Tokyo, followed Al Gore’s virtual appearance at Makuhari Messe.
The Tokyo crowd went wild for pop and hip-hop artist Ai Otsuka. Between sets, Ai said her participation in Live Earth had encouraged her “to start with [changing] small things.” Ai said she now brings her own bag to stores when shopping, turns off lights when she’s not using them, uses water as little as possible and rides her bicycle as frequently as she can. “I sometimes think we should turn off everything around the world for just five minutes,” she said.
After opening the Live Earth concert series in Sydney via live satellite feed, Al Gore launched Live Earth Tokyo this morning in a high-tech, virtual way – as a hologram.
After a stirring introduction by Lumi, the virtual-reality singer of Genki Rockets, a head-to-toe-likeness of the former U.S. Vice President materialized on stage and shared urgent yet hopeful words to the crowd gathered at Makuhari Messe. The holographic Gore had an expression of amazement as he delivered the following words:
"What an amazing world we live in – I love it that I can stand here on this stage in Tokyo and speak to you in holographic form. It is astounding that in just these recent few decades we have invented technologies that enable us to connect and instantly communicate our ideas and intentions with people on the other side of the globe.
Because of the communication channels and technologies now available to us, this venue is, at this moment, connected to the entire world. You are all communicating to well over 2 billion people right now – including all the Live Earth audiences in Sydney, Shanghai, Johannesburg, Hamburg, London, Rio de Janeiro and New York and the broadcast audience who will be watching on television and the Internet in over 100 countries.
The human race is also connected by the climate crisis. It is a global problem that transcends boundaries, languages and cultures. The climate crisis will impact everyone, everywhere on Earth.
If we look at the Earth from space, it looks like a blue ball coated with a very thin layer of lacquer, within which the air, water, and living beings exist. This fragile layer is all we have. It’s our only home – and we owe it to our children and our children’s children to protect it.
With Live Earth, we hope to connect people through the power of music and engage them with a simple, universal message: SOS. ANSWER THE CALL. The Live Earth concerts have the potential to inspire a mass audience to take immediate action and build a global movement for change. You can launch this movement today by pledging to make meaningful and lasting changes in your life. There are so many areas of our lives that contribute to the problem of global warming – and those are the very things that can we can change today and make part of the solution.
And you can commit to this pledge at LiveEarth.org.
As you are making these critical changes in your life, be sure to call on your leaders and elected officials to do the same.
It’s time to begin to heal the planet. Together, we can transform the way we relate to our environment. Global warming is now the greatest challenge facing our planet, the greatest we’ve ever faced. But it’s one problem we can solve – if we come together as one, take action and drive our neighbors, businesses and governments to act as well.
This is what Live Earth is all about.
To all assembled here in Tokyo, at the special event in Kyoto, and around the world: I thank you for being a part of Live Earth.
And I ask you to ANSWER THE CALL!"
Organizers today announced seventeen of the headliners who will perform at the U.S. leg of the 7-continent, 24-hour Live Earth concerts on 7/7/07. The concert will be held at Giants Stadium in New Jersey, Live Earth founder and executive producer Kevin Wall said. Tickets for the show go on sale Monday, April 16 at 10 a.m. EDT. "Capping Live Earth with a blockbuster show like this will ensure we meet our challenge of building a mass audience to combat global warming," Wall said. "Live Earth will be a monumental event both in terms of entertainment and in turning the tide against global warming."
"We hope the energy created by Live Earth will jump start a massive public education effort," Live Earth co-chair vice president Al Gore said. "Live Earth will help us reach a tipping point that's needed to move corporations and governments to take decisive action to solve the climate crisis."
The U.S. show will feature live on stage:

Rio's Live Earth concert cancelled over security concerns
It was billed as a chance to kick back on the golden sands of Copacabana — and save the world at the same time. Organisers of the Brazilian leg of the Live Earth concerts had hoped to lure more than 1 million people to South America's most famous beach on Saturday to watch Lenny Kravitz, Macy Gray and Brazilian popstar Jorge Benjor. But today Al Gore's global crusade against climate change appeared to have fallen victim to Rio's drug-trafficking gangs after a judge cancelled the event, ruling that police were too busy to provide security at the show.
