Live Earth Turkey Concert Canceled
According to the BBC and NME, organisers for the Istanbul, Turkey leg of Al Gore’s upcoming Live Earth global spectacular have confirmed that the Live Earth Event in Istanbul, Turkey has been canceled due to insufficient sponsorship and lack of time.
Tickets had yet to go on sale, although major Turkish stars including Mor Ve Otesi, Sebnem Ferah and Hayko Cepkin had agreed to perform. Officials will instead erect giant screens so locals can gather to watch the global warming awareness gigs.
The 24-hour Live Earth concert series will begin in Sydney, Australia and continue across the world with events in Japan, China, South Africa, Germany, London and Brazil, before concluding in New York.
