"Live Earth" The Concert For World Climate Change / "Live Earth" Is About So Much More Than Music

Sydney Kicks Off 24-Hour World Climate Change Concert

July 7 (Bloomberg) -- More than 45,000 people flocked to Sydney's Aussie Stadium today for the first of the Live Earth concerts, a series of music events being held in eight countries over the next 24 hours to spur action on global warming.

``This is not just about raising awareness but letting every individual out there know that they too can do something about the scourge that is global warming,'' Live Earth promoter Mark Pope said in a telephone interview from Sydney. ``Music has always been good at promoting issues like this.''

Live Earth: Fans Urged to Go Green

SYDNEY, Australia - Live Earth started in Asia with an ancient Aboriginal instrument, toured through rehashed 1970s rock, 1980s pop and laid-back surfer music, and touched the future with a holographic appearance by Al Gore.

It moved on to London, where Madonna flaunted her eco-friendly side as the headliner for an eclectic show that began with a battery of percussion set to flashing images of wildlife, pollution, alternative energy sources and the Earth seen from space.

Red-hot lineup

NEW YORK -- Live Earth is ambitious by any standard: eight concerts featuring the biggest names in music, playing for a 24-hour period across the globe, all for the cause of global warming.

But like its template -- 2006's Live 8, the global concert devoted to poverty in Africa -- the mission of Live Earth is somewhat amorphous.

Its aim is to "trigger a global movement to solve the climate crisis."
