Live Earth Coming to Charlotte

Posted By on Tue, Jun 26, 2007 at 10:33 AM

I missed the John Locke Foundation's "Why Al Gore is Wrong" talk Monday about global warming. Yeah, yeah, yeah ... I'd actually hoped to go. Here's a related event (albeit of a ideologically different stripe) that also looks interesting — and entertaining. Local activists, including Brian Staton (who sent this to me) are working with the Neighborhood Theatre (which has hosted An Inconvenient Truth screenings) to stage a Live Earth concert here.

From Brian's e-mail:

Live Earth is a monumental music event that will bring together more than 2 billion people on 7/7/07 to raise awareness about global warming. With 24 hours of music across 7 continents, and performances by more than 150 of the world's top musicians, Live Earth will engage, connect, and inspire. Charlotte Friends of Live Earth will combine education with a free live concert experience!

The Neighborhood Theatre 511 E. 36th Street - NoDa - Charlotte, NC will create a FREE Live Concert experience for the Live Earth monumental music event that will bring together more than 2 billion people on 7/7/07 to raise awareness about global warming !!!

Join us at the Neighborhood Theatre for Charlotte Friends of Live Earth; FROM 5 pm TO CLOSE. Let's make 7/7/07 a very special day in Charlotte! For more info: http://www.neighborhoodtheatre.com/theatre/events/current.asp
