As we promised, we’re gonna cover the immense [tag]Live Earth[/tag] Festival. With 24 hours of music across 7 continents, and performances by more than 150 of the world’s top musicians, Live Earth will engage, connect, and inspire individuals, corporations and governments to take action to solve the climate crisis.
Our first stop is Sydney were the gigs began at 10:30 AM at the Aussie Stadium in Moore Park, where a aboriginal group launched the event with a song and dance performance called “Welcome To The Country”.
The man behind Live Earth, former US vice-president, Al Gore took the time to congratulate the people attending the Sydney show, as they’re the ones to kick the whole event.
“You are the very first of two billion people that are coming together today from all seven continents to help solve the climate crisis,” he said. “We’re all here for one thing – we’re all here to campaign about action. I hope you will take the first step by signing the Live Earth seven point pledge.”
Sydney performers include Missy Higgins, Sneaky Sound System, Toni Collette & the Finish, Eskimo Joe, John Butler Trio, Jack Johnson, Paul Kelly, [tag]Crowded House[/tag], Blue King Brown Ghostwriters and [tag]Wolfmother[/tag].
