LIVE EARTH - General Discussion

I wasn't able to watch much of it yesterday.

Currently catching myself up on youtube.. (haha)

So far have watched the Police, Chili Peppers, Foo Fighters, ...currently watching Ghostwriters (I'm a long time Midnight Oil fan)

Saw a few other bits on TV yesterday (Beastie Boys, black-eyed peas, quick highlights from Shanghai)

I'm guessing alot of people here watched...

thoughts? recommendations or acts to look up?

thx.

...didn't realize they took place only six days apart. Live Earth did seem a bit rushed and disorganized in some ways, as opposed to Live 8 or Live Aid, the obvious comparison(s).

It's hard to compare Live Earth to Diana's concert for anyone outside the UK I think, as that was only in London.

In any case I did look up the set lists...



LIVE EARTH LONDON

Genesis
Razorlight
Snow Patrol
Damien Rice & David Gray
Kasabian
Paolo Nutini
Black Eyed Peas
John Legend
Duran Duran
Red Hot Chili Peppers

Keane
Metallica
Spinal Tap
James Blunt
Beastie Boys
Pussycat Dolls
Foo Fighters
Madonna

in any case, the concert has reminded me about the website Gore set up for people to take action on the issue. If you're interested please check this out:
