Bloc Party Joins Live Earth Lineup

Bloc Party is the latest band to announce its support of Al Gore's mega-concerts, Live Earth, planned to span 24 hours on July 7 all over the world. The initial lineup of 25 artists was released yesterday (Feb 15) and will reach more than 100 before the concerts take off. Working with the team that produced Live8, Gore hopes to further bring awareness of his Global Warming campaign to the masses. The initial lineup of aritsts shows a mix of genres but is also very mainstream -- likely to attract the mainstream to watch. But the addition of Bloc Party gives hope that this series of worldwide concerts -- being staged in London (Wembley), Sydney, Rio, Shanghai, Kyoto, Johannesburg and a to be determined U.S. city (my guess is either NY or Philly) -- will actually pull in some amazing new talent. Think the Police will show up to this too?

Other artists in addition to Bloc Party already set to perform at Live Earth:

Pharrell, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Foo Fighters, Snoop Dogg, Lenny Kravitz, Bon Jovi, Paolo Nutini, Sheryl Crow, AFI, Melissa Etheridge, John Mayer, Damien Rice, Corrine Bailey Rae, Duran Duran, Snow Patrol, John Legend, Black Eyed Peas, Akon, Enrique Iglesias, Fall Out Boy, Mana, Keane, Kelly Clarkson, Korn, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, Ray LaMontagne, Robin Thicke and Kenna.
