    Default Live Earth - Worldwide Concerts

    http://www.liveearth.org/

    Many of the world's artists and bands are getting together at various venues around the world to play 24 hours worth of music! They have an awesome line-up (Which can be seen by clicking on the venues). This starts in 3 and a half hours.

    Should be awesome

    But he's in North America.

    -edit- By the way, any North Americans know what (if any) TV stations are covering the thing? I really don't want to have to listen online but also don't want a repeat of MTV's Who/Floyd fiasco of two years ago.

    My aim, then, was to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.

    I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation.

    No Floyd = no point watching as I find Modern artists rubbish.

    Haha, the only things I would watch would be The John Butler Trio, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Roger Waters. The rest of the line up is horrible.

    Wow, the Black Eyed Peas were bad. The artist interviews are embarassing also, they should just shut up and sing.

    Wolf Mother and Linkin Park killed imo and Crowded House were awesome and their crowd was too. Riahana was actually really good live as I know that many who sing in here genre suck when they go live. Right now Im just waiting for the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Metallica to go live.

    Yeah, right now I'm waiting for the last four US acts (Bon Jovi, Smashing Pumpkins, Roger Waters, Police) to save things.

    I dunno, I've quite enjoyed parts of this. Razorlight was good, I listened to them because nothing else was on. Snow Patrol was alright and I enjoyed Ghostwriters when they were on (They are playing now actually). But yeah, I think the American acts should be good.

    I can't complain on my end. The TV coverage was adequate, Roger was excellent as always, Bon Jovi and the Pumpkins put on a good show, and the Police were awesome until Kanye West came out and ruined "Message in a Bottle".

    Don't you hate it when they try stuff like that!?

    I missed most of it during the evening here in the US but was lucky enough to see Red Hot Chili Peppers and Metallica live, that was AWESOME!!! Chili Peppers killed and Metallica didn't disappoint. Nano-Tech from Antartica was actually kind good and fun to watch(albeit a little too close to the edge from an icy death).

    And man The Police killed even with Jon Meyer until West came on and that put a downer on the show but still it was awesome and I couldn't believe that it's over (just saw it).

    I found Crowded House, Metallica and Foo Fighters to be excellent. Also Keane, James Blunt and Snow Patrol put on a good show. Shame that I missed the Police though.

    Not at all, you can watch the whole NY showing and all the others here on MSN.
    But when you try and click on another showing like the UK or Australia it quits to desktop(at least for me) so you can bookmark it or something. Hope this works:
    http://liveearth.msn.com/artists
    well the first one dissapeared so here's the list of artists and just click on one and then the concert they were at and enjoy

    BTW, even though Floyd wasn't there, Roger Waters was and put on a good performance.

    Just saw some summary (well watching the last part as I type) and I have to say that the only real good performances were Foo Fighters, The Police and Crowded House. Sure no-one can be Queen, but there were some real bad performances (KT Tunstall anyone?).


    I also like the hypocracy of this event. Yeah we should use less energy ... DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH ENERGY THOSE CONCERTS COST?

    But that said think about the energy saved in return if everyone who watched would follow their little energy saving tips, which they certainly bombarded the viewers with, much to my chagrin atleast.

    Lol yeah.

    I wonder how much energy would have been saved if everyone had turned off their TVs and Computers at the power points and not watched.

    Sorry about that Rythmic.

    Actually, they used used materials to make the stages and also those florescent light bulbs for all the lights. The wood were all being reused and tbh, it wasn't very hypocritical of anything. Seriously, they must have said that 80 times during the whole thing lol. I think it was impressive the amount of effort put into the whole thing.

    Plus, it seems that what ever these people do to try and get the word out about reducing emissions, all of their little misgivings are "blown up". It's kinda like being a Christian, you swear, look at naughty pics of chicks every now and again, listen to Rock N' Roll, watch rated R movies, and all of these are pointed out and "blown up." The concerts showed that even when they are saving more energy and materials in the production of this event, they are still as good as the real deal.
