So the cat’s finally out of the bag: ‘Live Earth,’ the much-talked-about music concert that ex-United States Vice President Al Gore is organizing in the name of global warming, is now a full-fledged project to be organized on a massive, multi-cultural scale. “It was the most stellar array of media figures you could ever see but to get all those people in the room on a Friday night shows how willing they are to help,” said an inside source, referring to a top-secret meeting Gore had with the media and his personal advisers in order to being planning for the event.
Expected to headline the event are Kylie Minogue and U2 (of course, this is Bono‘s cup of tea), as well as Madonna, Robbie Williams, Coldplay, and Oasis. (Let’s hope the organizers keep Noel Gallagher and Bono far, far away from each other.) The full list of performers that will be participating in Live Earth will be released by the end of the week, official sources say. But some of the organizers are already buzzing with excitement at the invitation extended to The Spice Girls for a reunion performance – although Emma Bunton will probably not be able to make it because of her rapidly expanding pregnancy.
‘Live Earth’ will be held on July 7, 2007, and aired simultaneously from different performances across the globe: England, Japan, USA, South Africa, and Brazil. So tune in to this space – I’m sure we’d be getting a lot of buzz as the days go by.
