Live Earth: Al Gore's 24 hour party to fight global warming

285diazgorepharrell0215 Al Gore has announced plans for a 24-hour pop concert held across seven continents, proming it will be 'bigger than Live Aid'. His mission: to draw the world's attention to the threat of climate change, and prompt a global change of attitude.

Live Earth  (due to take place on 07/07/07) looks set to follow in the successes of former 'awareness' gigs including Live 8, whose executive producer Kevin Wall is also on board. It's the main publicity-spinner for a larger project called SOS: The Campaign for a Climate in Crisis, which will use TV, film, radio and the internet to ensure the message gets through to billions worldwide. Gore made the announcement yesterday, along with Cameron Diaz and rap producer Pharrell Williams.

I'm looking forward to see Duran Duran, but I still don't know in which stage they will appear. Does anybody have info in which stage they will be?
