Default Live Earth Concerts on Sirius Satellite Radio

SIRIUS Satellite Radio will broadcast all 8 Live Earth: The Concerts for a Climate in Crisis including live backstage interviews from New York and live commentary of the London concert.

The historic event will take place this Saturday July 7, 2007 over 24 hours and encompass 7 continents, 8 cities, and over 150 music artists including performances from The Police, Bon Jovi, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Black Eyed Peas, Metallica, John Mayer, Smashing Pumpkins, Roger Waters, Beastie Boys, Genesis, Kanye West, Duran Duran, Madonna and many others. SIRIUS will also dedicate a channel to broadcasting the best of Live Earth, highlighting the most memorable moments from all 8 concerts.

Staying true to the spirit of the event, SIRIUS will launch Green 119, a four-day broadcast channel starting July 4, dedicated to informing the audience about the realities of the climate crisis with environmental tips and myths, celebrity interviews, political commentary, listener comments and the Live Earth concert calendar.

Live Earth, a project of the SOS Campaign, is designed to motivate people to take action to combat the current climate crisis.

The coolest thing about Live Earth is Spinal Tap is playing the London gig.

Thanks for that link-- Sirius' schedule isn't much help (The Johannesburg concert is listed as starting at 11am, but isn't showing up yet), at least I can monitor what else is on while I listen to the London show..

I love technology! I am watching the England broadcast on the 'net and simply delaying my Sirius radio to link up- sounds (and looks) great. Of course, if I had something more than basic cable, I guess I could watch this on one of NBC's obscure channels i don't get....Oh well.

Thanks Sirius!

Wow. I'm sure re-runs of Hannity will be on the ABC channel for you.

Seriously though, you don't have to agree with the politics of the show to enjoy the concerts. They have been great!

Maybe you'll get cancer and realize that your health insurance won't cover for what surgery you need because you had a yeast infection.

Now instead of air pollution we can ruin the Earth with noise pollution.

I did want to listen, but once I heard Covino and Rich on one channel and then flipped to another channel only to hear Madison, I just turned it off. Unfunny, annoying DJ's ruin the experience for me.
