BILL CLINTON OPENS FOR THE STONES!

What a support act...

BILL CLINTON opened a free concert by the THE ROLLING STONES

in LOS ANGELES last night in order to raise awareness on global warming.

The former US president, speaking at the city’s Staples Centre, said it was the responsibility of average citizens to, “stop the planet from burning up”.

He explained: “The reason this concert is important, is that the old energy economy that’s cheating us as a planet is very well organised, highly centralised, rich as can be and very politically connected.

“And the new energy future is decentralised, entrepreneurial and needs people like you to say, ‘Give me a clean car, give me solar shingles to put on my roof – give me a clean future.”

The event – organised by the Natural Resources Defence Council (NRDC) – saw the Stones

perform a 135-minute set which included classics such as, ‘Start Me Up’ and ‘Street Fighting Man’

Stones

frontman Mick Jagger told the 18,000-strong crowd: “We’re putting the spotlight on a very good cause, and you can all feel very good about that.”

According to Reuters, stars including Leonardo Di Caprio, Pierce Brosnan, Lisa Kudrow, Mira Sorvino and Cameron Diaz attended the event.
