Yup. It’s that time again. Sing your hearts out to save the world. More than 100 of the world’s top musicians will perform at a series of worldwide concerts this summer to highlight the threat of global warming. It’s a kind of cute, almost naive Western approach to tackling something no-one really knows how to tackle. Still, it’ll be a nice day out for indie and emo kidz. Shanghai has been included in a list of eight cities worldwide. That should keep the Chinese police busy!
At the press conference the organisers said Live Earth “will become the model for carbon neutral concerts and other live events in the future”. Should be able to replant most of those forests chopped down in Europe hundreds of years ago then! The concerts’ producer Kevin Wall won an Emmy Award for producing the Live 8 concerts in 2005.
Wanna know who’s rocking on July 7th? £££££
