Former VP Al Gore hosts Live Earth Concert
Can music save the world? Former Vice-President Al Gore sure hopes so!
While his son, Al Gore III, is smoking the herb, Al Gore is trying to preserve it!
Gore will host a 24-hour benefit concert starting this Saturday dubbed Live Earth. The rundown includes such heavy hitters as Madonna, Kanye West, John Mayer and Keith Urban to the newly reunited Genesis, The Police, Smashing Pumpkins, Crowded House and Spinal Tap.
"Music is a universal language that can reach people in ways that no other medium can," Gore said.
With 100 acts in eight cities, Live Earth is projected to reach an estimated 2 billion people via television, radio and the Internet. This will definitely be the world's largest show to date and history's most ambitious benefit event, engulfing 1985's Live Aid and 2005's Live 8.
