Live Earth

Sunday, July 8th, 2007

I thought Kevin Wall, Al Gore and friends did a great job putting together the Live Earth concert. Musically, the highlights of the TV broadcast included the Beastie Boys, Madonna (a killer set), UB40, Linkin Park, Macy Gray, Roger Waters and his flying pig, Melissa Etheridge, the Police with Kanye West, and Yusuf Islam singing “Peace Train”.

I thought the interspersed short films were quite good as well. I know it’s fashionable to scoff at these concerts (it’s probably even more fashionable to scoff at them than it is to attend them) but I bet a lot of people learned new things about environmental issues yesterday.
