Triple 7

Live Earth
7.7.07-Mark this date on your calendar people, for once we at Surrealist Love Scene will be wearing green. Though green is not our daily wearable colour, we very much prefer everything and anything black! We are always quite skeptical about such global campaign, but Live earth is too huge too ignore. Further more, some of our fave bands are playing live and supporting the movement! How we wish we can be teleported around the globe to watch Metallica, Spinal Tap, Bloc Party, Beastie Boys, Foo Fighters, Kasabian, Razorlight, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Snow Patrol, Dave Matthews Band, Smashing Pumpkins, Talking Back Sunday, Pharrell Williams, The Police, Rip Slyme, Chris Cornell, Snoop Dogg, Madonna, Wolfmother, John Butler Trio, Anthony Wong and Sarah Brightman.

The 24-hour LIVE EARTH concert will go down in history probably as the biggest event of the year, gathering the biggest names in the music industry around the globe. New York, London, Johannesburg, Rio De Janeiro, Shanghai, Tokyo, Sydney and Hamburg all coming together with 2 billion people to trigger a global movement to solve the climate crisis. For now, thrash the politics aside and come together to address a global problem.

Live Earth will stage official concerts at Giants Stadium in New York; Wembley Stadium in London; Aussie Stadium in Sydney; Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro; Maropeng at the Cradle of Humankind in Johannesburg; Makuhari Messe in Tokyo; the Steps of the Oriental Pearl Tower in Shanghai; and HSH Nordbank Arena in Hamburg.

  1. Fans of Michael Nyman – appearing in Kyoto – may be interested to know that he is performing in Cambridge, England on Tuesday July 3rd, the opening event of the 27th Cambridge Film Festival.
