More acts announced for 'Live Earth' concerts
Snow Patrol, Paolo Nutini and Fall Out Boy have been added to the line-up for the ’Save Our Selves - The Campaign for a Climate in Crisis’ concerts set for July 7.

As previously reported Foo Fighters, Bloc Party, Keane, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Snoop Dogg have also been confirmed to perform at the 24-hour music event to promote climate change.

Bon Jovi, Black Eyed Peas, Lenny Kravitz and Duran Duran are also on the bill for the event, dubbed ’Live Earth’, which will take place in cities across the globe.

The event will bring awareness to Save Our Selves - The Campaign for a Climate in Crisis, an issue which has been brought to the fore by former US vice-president Al Gore with his documentary ’An Inconvenient Truth’. Gore is chairperson of the SOS organisation.

The concerts will take place in Shanghai, Johannesburg[b], [b]Sydney, and London, with more shows to be announced in Japan, Brazil and the United States.

Two billion people are expected to see the concerts.
