The Police and Smashing Pumpkins for US Live Earth

Kanye West, Fall Out Boy and Bon Jovi will also perform

The line-up has been unveiled for the US leg of Al Gore’s Live Earth concerts, which has been confirmed to take place at Giants Stadium in New Jersey.

The Police, Smashing Pumpkins, Bon Jovi and Kanye West will perform, as will AFI, Sheryl Crow, Fall Out Boy and John Mayer.

Concerts will take place across seven continents throughout July 7, and will culminate with the New Jersey show.

“We hope the energy created by Live Earth will jump start a massive public education effort,” Live Earth co-chair vice president Al Gore said. “Live Earth will help us reach a tipping point that’s needed to move corporations and governments to take decisive action to solve the climate crisis.”

Tickets for the show go on sale Monday, April 16 at 10am.
