It’s also been announced that an exclusive download of Metallica’s Live Earth performance is going to be available for a minimal fee immediately after the event finishes. With of course all money raised going to the four climate charities hand-selected by the band: Sierra Club, The Apollo Alliance, WWF and Rainforest Action Network.
Lars Ulrich of Metallica saidâ€¦ “I love my sons. I want them to “inherit the Earth” FOR REAL! We keep waiting for future generations to solve the problems; to invent cleaner technology; to pay the costs…that’s the same as passing the buck. I want the buck to stop here, now. I want lawmakers and laws to impose change. Nothing else will keep this world safe for my sons.”
Kasabian, whose latest album â€˜Empire’ went in at number one in the UK album chart, are joined by Grammy nominated pop sensations the Pussycat Dolls, and Terra Naomi, who wrote the song â€˜Say It’s Possible’ after watching Al Gore’s â€˜An Inconvenient Truth’. As part of a virtual tour from her Los Angeles apartment, she recorded herself on a video camera and posted it on YouTube; it soon found itself on the site’s front page. Within two days, it had amassed over 200,000 views – a figure that now stands at over 2 million.
It’s also worth noting that a small number of tickets have been released this week and successful applications will be contacted by SMS with instructions on how to purchase their tickets.
