Well. As you probably know on the 7th of July of 2007 it happened the 24 hours Live Earth.
It was an amazing show that was held all over the world in about 10000 different places. This Live Earth was made by Kevin Wall, Al Gore and the Alliance for Climate Protection to try to make people know (if they don't know already) how to save our planet not only to our future generations but to our generation.
For me the best bands was in New Jersey, NY Bon Jovi, in London Madonna, in Tokyo Linkin Park, in Sydney Crowded House and in Hamburg Shakira.
I didn't see Metallica, Snow Patrol, The Police, Foo Fighters, Roger Waters, Duran Duran, Fall Out Boy, AFI, David Gray. I also loved Kelly Clarkson in NJ, Genesis in London, Sarah Brightman in China, Enrique Iglesias in Germany, Black Eyed Peas in London.
It was a huge success. The show was seen for more than 2 billion people all over the world. The main shows were in New York, London, Johannesburg, Rio de Janeiro, Shanghai, Tokyo, Sydney, Hamburg and many other places.

Well, here it goes the story of Live Earth from the official site.
Live Earth is a 24-hour, 7-continent concert series taking place on 7/7/07 that will bring together more than 100 music artists and 2 billion people to trigger a global movement to solve the climate crisis.
Live Earth will reach this worldwide audience through an unprecedented global media architecture covering all media platforms - TV, radio, Internet and wireless channels.
Live Earth marks the beginning of a multi-year campaign led by the Alliance for Climate Protection, The Climate Group and other international organizations to drive individuals, corporations and governments to take action to solve global warming. Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore is the Chair of the Alliance and Partner of Live Earth.
Live Earth was founded by Kevin Wall, the Worldwide Executive Producer of Live 8, an event that brought together one of the largest audiences in history to combat poverty. Wall formed a partnership with Al Gore and the Alliance for Climate Protection to ensure that Live Earth inspires behavioral changes long after 7/7/07.
Live Earth will stage official concerts at Giants Stadium in New York; Wembley Stadium in London; Aussie Stadium in Sydney; Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro; the Coca-Cola Dome in Johannesburg; Makuhari Messe in Tokyo; the Oriental Pearl Tower in Shanghai; and HSH Nordbank Arena in Hamburg.
Live Earth concerts will be broadcast to a live worldwide audience by MSN at www.LiveEarth.MSN.com.
With support from the U.S. Green Building Council, creators of the LEED Green Building Rating System, Live Earth will implement new Green Event Guidelines. All Live Earth venues will be designed and constructed by a team of sustainability engineers who will address the environmental and energy management challenges of each concert site, as well as the operations of sponsors, partners and other Live Earth affiliates. Each venue will not only be designed to maintain a minimum environmental impact, but will showcase the latest state-of-the-art energy efficiency, on-site power generation, and sustainable facilities management practices.
Live Earth is a project of the SOS campaign, which is using a powerful multimedia platform - films, television, radio, Internet, books, wireless and others - to move people to combat the climate crisis.
