This Live Earth global gig.

I hope the promoters realise that the biggest majority of the audience are not interested in saving "Planet Earth".
All they want to see is some good bands playing well.... and a nice day out.

Cynical anyone???
Listen to your consience.

I'm turning off all my electrical equipment to cut down carbon emissions, so I can't see this concert.

Oh well.

It'll probably be a load of shit to be fair, but I'll probably listen to some it on Radio 2 later, because the lovely Russell Brand is presenting it.

I've got an ECP (a.k.a carbon footprint thing) of 241. I should bloody well think so, considering even the busses I use are electric. And, I've also turned off my TV to save carbon emissions...that, and we don't even get to see Live Earth anyway!

My thoughts exactly Zebonka12. Its seems hypocritical to me that they are gonna use all this electricity, fuel and energy to heighten awareness of a subject which the above is apparently the cause of. Great, so your using green knives and forks backstage and having English white wine instead of Champagne.

We all know climate change is happening. If you like in the UK, just look out your window. This is summer.

Basically Gore, your not an Irish gypo so don't bother. And its Wembley where the UK concert will be held, not Wimbledon.

Reason set aside, a bit of an odd mix of bands really, but hopefully a better choice than the Princess Diana Concert last week!

ive done my bit.ive turned my tv off so i dont have to watch this rubbish.no doubt it will feature all the usual do-gooding tree huggers that will say "do as i say and not as i do".dame Bonio will probably be at the front of queue prattling on about climate change while stamping his global carbon footprint all over the place.
these scientists and meteologists that will no doubt tell us that we will all die in the next 20 years are the same people that cant tell me what the weather will be like next week.
its all just an Al Gore ego trip.
i propose that the 2 billion people that are rumoured to be watching it turn their tv's off and do something else instead before they destroy the world [if what al bore says is true,which he cant prove of course as his theories are all hyperthetical].
rant over,im off to the pub for a pint before that becomes illegal too

ps this really should be in personal forum i think..

As if extremist atheists weren't part of it.

As for Live Earth, all the huge amount of electric energy spent on lighting a stage and the fuel spent on transportation of equipment and the artists themselves, doesn't make much sense to me.

If the point of this concert is to spread the message about conserving energy, then at least have small acoustic gigs.

That would have been an interesting idea Mr. Jingles. Seeing loads of these modern bands doing acoustic sets.

Like Chris Cornell... has anyone heard his acoustic version of Billie Jean? Absolutely fantastic. If they did a Live Earth show with just him and his guitar for 6 hours, I'd be happy. :)

Ugh.... Live 8, Instant Karma, Concert for Diana, Live Earth... They just want another Live Aid or Freddie Mercury Tribute.

Seems like all they're doing now is looking for reasons to have big benefit concerts.

I heard it on Howard Stern, and although nothing beats the original it's still a really cool version.

If they want to have something as successful as Live Aid, they can't spread it out like they are, having events at 5 or 6 different venues. Have NY or Philly and London, cram it with all the stars of today and the talented artists from back in the day and you may have something......

This has nothing to do with the subject, but what does the word 'demise' mean? :)

If this concert is for the good of the world, shouldn't they have done it all acoustically?

Tonight there is going to be a replay of it at eight but they are just highlights of it. Does anyone think that they're going to show the opening that has Roger Taylor and everything? Sorry to ask, but that's really all I wanted to see (except for Metallica and the Police) and I missed it.

The drumming opening scene I didn't think was anything special at all to be honest.
