Linkin Park played for a full hour notwithstanding a small pause due to a minor disturbance in the audience.

Billboard quotes Japanese singer Cocco, who encouraged activism regarding a carbon-intensive heliport being built in her home prefecture of Okinawa.

It was reported by Japan Today that solar power juiced the entire event.

Singer Akaya encouraged the audience to bring their own bags and personal chopsticks with them wherever they go.

Perhaps the most intriguing medium at the concert was the hologram by which Al Gore appeared and reiterated the gravity of the threat of global warming.

He encouraged joint action and for people to “drive our neighbours, businesses and governments to act as well. That’s what Live Earth is all about.”

Rapper Xzibit told the Tokyo audience that he wants his son and the rest of the world’s children to inherit “something they can hold on to, not something that’s falling apart, on the brink.”

The Kyoto event was smaller in scale. There was, however, no shortage of enthusiasm. The sold-out crowd numbered 3,000 at the ancient Japanese capital’s Toji temple. The event was headlined by Yellow Magic Orchestra, a popular 70s band which reunited for the concert.
