Metallica Joins Live Earth Line-Up


Metallica, Kasabian, Pussycat Dolls, and Terra Naomi are the final acts to be added to the Live Earth London line-up performing at Wembley Stadium as part of the 24-hour, 7-continent Live Earth concert series on 7/7/07.

Lars Ulrich of Metallica: “I love my sons. I want them to “inherit the Earth” FOR REAL! We keep waiting for future generations to solve the problems; to invent cleaner technology; to pay the costs…that’s the same as passing the buck. I want the buck to stop here, now. I want lawmakers and laws to impose change. Nothing else will keep this world safe for my sons.”

All money raised will benefit four climate charities hand-selected by the band: Sierra Club, The Apollo Alliance, WWF and Rainforest Action Network.

The concert will be streamed live on 7/7/07 at LiveEarth.MSN.com and broadcasted on more than 120 networks around the world. An exclusive download of Metallica’s Live Earth performance is going to be available for a minimal fee immediately after the event finishes.
