Winning an Oscar hasn’t stopped Al Gore from his fight against global warming. The former vice president has recently announced a series of concerts around the world to raise attention on the issue of global warming.

On July 7, 24-hour concerts which will be performed by over 100 artists such as Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Kelly Clarkson, Bon Jovi, Snoop Dogg, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Foo Fighters, Duran Duran, Lenny Kravitz, Sheryl Crow, John Mayer, Bloc Party, the Black Eyed Peas, Fall Out Boy, and Snow Patrol as well as many others on several continents. These concerts will take place in places such as London, England; Sydney, Australia; Shanghai, China; Johannesburg, South Africa; and Kyoto, Japan, as well as more cities that will be announced in the United States and Brazil.

Gore is hoping to gather over two billion viewers in order to change their views on global warming to make them activists on this dangerous topic. Gore has teamed up with Live 8 creator, Kevin Wall, as well as Cameron Diaz, Pharrell and Mana, to launch this event. Together they hope to make this growing epidemic an issue that finally receives some attention.

Ticket information will be released sometime in March for all of these events, as well as the performers at each city. Each concert will last between four-eight hours. Proceeds from all of the concerts will go towards the Save Our Selves campaign, which has yet to be launched.

Concerts will be able to reach people around the world through television, internet, film and radio. To receive more information about the upcoming events, you can log onto http://liveearth.org.
