After much back–and–forth over D.C. locations for Al Gore’s Live Earth Concerts on 7/7/07, organizers today announced the U.S. concert will be held at Giants Stadium in New Jersey. Tickets for the show will go on sale Monday, April 16, at 10 a.m. EDT.
Locations were also announced for five of the other seven concerts to be held on the seven continents:
UK: Wembley Stadium, London
Brazil: Copacabana Beach, Rio de Janeiro
South Africa: The Cradle of Human Kind, Maropeng near Johannesburg
Japan: Tokyo Dome, Tokyo
Australia: Aussie Stadium, Moore Park, Sydney
The China concert will be held in Shanghai, but the venue is yet to be determined (is there an Inhofe-type over there too?). No word yet on the Antarctica situation.
Initial line-ups have been announced for both the U.S. and U.K. shows:
Dave Matthews Band
Fall Out Boy
Black Eyed Peas
Corinne Bailey Rae
Red Hot Chili Peppers
