Foo Fighters, Madonna and Genesis are among the groups set to play the UK leg of this summer’s Live Earth concerts.

They will be joined by Beastie Boys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Duran Duran and Razorlight at the show on July 7.

The gig, which will take place at Wembley Stadium, also features James Blunt, David Gray, Damien Rice, Black Eyed Peas, Bloc Party, Corinne Bailey Rae, Keane and Paolo Nutini, with more names to be announced.

The London show is one of several taking place across the globe on July 7, which are being organised by former US Vice President Al Gore to highlight climate change issues.

Tickets for the gig – which will cost £55 – will be allocated by ballot, which fans can register for from 12pm (BST) on Friday (April 13) for 72 hours. After that time go to Livenation.co.uk/liveearth.

Concerts will also take place in Johannesburg, Rio de Janeiro, Shanghai, Sydney, Tokyo and possibly New York, with profits going to organisations including the Alliance For Climate Protection, the Climate Group and Stop Climate Chaos.
