If you signed Al Gore's petition that he brought forward to congress, you're probably on his email list. And if you're on his email list, you probably received the news yesterday that Live Earth tickets go on sale this coming Monday, April 16th. The global concert will begin in Sydney on 7/7/07 and will continue across all 7 continents, concluding with a show in the U.S. Also announced yesterday were 16 headliners for the U.S. leg which will take place at Giants Stadium in New Jersey, including: AFI, Akon, Alicia Keys, Bon Jovi, Dave Matthews Band, Fall Out Boy, John Mayer, Kanye West, Kelly Clarkson, KT Tunstall, Ludacris, Melissa Ethridge, Rihanna, Roger Waters, Smashing Pumpkins and The Police. Earlier in the day yesterday, the artists to perform at the London leg of Live Earth, to be held at Wembley Stadium, were also announced, including: Beastie Boys, Black Eyed Peas, Bloc Party, Corinne Bailey Rae, Damien Rice, David Gray, Duran Duran, Foo Fighters, Genesis, James Blunt, John Legend, Keane, Madonna, Paolo Nutini, Razorlight, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Snow Patrol. "We hope the energy created by Live Earth will jump start a massive public education effort," Gore said. "Live Earth will help us reach a tipping point that's needed to move corporations and governments to take decisive action to solve the climate crisis." ::Live Earth
