Live Earth CD/DVD set announced Print E-mail

Tuesday, 16 October 2007

live earth dvd capture On July 7th, 2007, 150 musical acts performed at Live Earth, the series of worldwide concerts to raise awareness for the climate crisis and deliver a solutions-based message to a global audience. Amongst these, wowing the audiences with his inflatable pig, was our own Roger Waters!

On November 20th, Warner Bros. Records will release "Live Earth - The Concerts For A Climate In Crisis", a combined CD and 2-DVD package that brings together the most popular artists, best performances (including Roger, band and pig!), and the messages showcased at the global musical event.

Staged in New York, London, Sydney, Tokyo, Shanghai, Rio de Janeiro, Johannesburg and Hamburg, with special events broadcast from Antarctica, Kyoto, and Washington, DC, the event brought the message of the problems facing the planet into homes across the world.

The CD/2DVD package includes performances from other artists such as Linkin Park, Metallica, Smashing Pumpkins, Black Eyed Peas, Kelly Clarkson, Dave Matthews Band, Foo Fighters, John Mayer, Keith Urban, Beastie Boys, Bon Jovi, Rihanna and many more. The first single from "Live Earth - The Concerts For A Climate In Crisis" will be "Bleed It Out," performed by Linkin Park at Maduhari Messe in Japan. The digital bundle of tracks will be available on iTunes, Zune and from other digital retailers on November 6th.

In addition to the live performances, the "Live Earth" DVD will also include six short films from the Live Earth Film Series and a documentary on the making of Live Earth shot by award-winning filmmakers Nick Wickham and Emer Patten. The short films, some of which premiered at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival, were commissioned by Live Earth to utilize the power of film to educate a global audience through entertainment.

"This CD/DVD package gives audiences another opportunity to experience the excitement of the largest entertainment event in history, while re-engaging with the issue of the climate crisis," said Kevin Wall, Live Earth Founder & Chairman. "We believe music has the power to influence and this package is a chance to expose more people to the Live Earth concerts and message."

To pre-order the CD/2DVD set, please use the following links: Amazon UK, Amazon.com (US), Amazon Germany, or Amazon France. We should have the ordering links for Amazon Canada shortly.

The digital album will become available globally for purchase via iTunes and all other participating digital retail outlets on November 6th. iTunes was the first to launch a pre-order campaign which began in earnest less than 24 hours after the actual July 7th event with an available for purchase instant download of John Mayer's performance of "Waiting On The World To Change."

Live Earth's net proceeds from the sale of the CD/2DVD set will go to benefit the Alliance for Climate Protection, whose mission is to persuade the public about the importance and urgency of adopting and implementing effective and comprehensive solutions for the climate crisis.
