Not all fun and pure entertainment, there's a bigger purpose behind all of this. "By attracting an audience of billions, we hope Live Earth will launch a global campaign giving a critical mass of people around the world the tools they need to help solve the climate crisis," said former US vice president Al Gore, who is one of the organizers. Money raised from the tickets sale will go to Alliance for Climate Protection, the Climate Group and Stop Climate Chaos.
