Live Earth Update

July 6, 2007
Washington D.C. can now officially be added to the roster of host cities for the Live Earth concert series. Al Gore himself announced the addition of our Nation’s capital as the latest venue.
The D.C. concert will take place on the Mall, and will feature singers Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood.
The Museum of the American Indian has agreed to host the event and Native American musical group Blues Nation will perform as well.
Also, the concert planned for Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil will proceed as originally planned. Last-minute security concerns prompted a Brazilian judge to ban the concert, but the organizing committee overcame the judge’s objections by getting a guarantee from the Rio police that there would be adequate security.
Rio is the only Live Earth concert free and open to the public.

    isnt it a contradiction in terms to even be doing this

    imagine the pollution that's going to be caused by the extra resources used to print tickets, fly bands and equipment - not to mention the petrol used by people travelling to see the gigs
