Will there be an Irish Live Earth concert? Shows are already slated for New Jersey, London, Shanghai, Sydney, Johannesburg and Rio de Janeiro for July 7th, but on that day here the Oxegen bash gets under way in Co Kildare. So Al Gore’s attempts to raise awareness about global warming may take a back-seat in Ireland.

Among the many acts who’ve already signed up for Live Earth are Madonna, Beastie Boys, Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Snow Patrol and Kanye West. The organisers hope the various shows will attract a global TV audience of two billion. Registration for tickets to the London concert begins today.
