Live shows slated to be held in Brazil, Shanghai, Johannesburg, London, Sydney, Japan and an as yet unannounced East Coast U.S. city, are expected to reach 2 billion people across all 7 continents via TV, radio and the Internet on July 7th when more than 100 of the world's top musical acts take the stage to draw attention to environmental issues. MSN has partnered with SOS to use its reach to make the Live Earth concerts available across the globe. The Live Earth audience, and the proceeds from the concerts, will create the foundation for a new, multi-year global effort to combat the climate crisis led by The Alliance for Climate Protection and its Chair, Vice President Al Gore.
