Sting and John Legend Join Climate Rally on Earth Day


Joining The Roots and Bob Weir, Sting and John Legend have been tapped to perform at a climate rally to mark Earth Day 2010 on The National Mall in Washington, D.C.

Sting and John Legend are to co-headline a climate rally to mark Earth Day 2010 on The National Mall in Washington, D.C. The duo will join The Roots, Bob Weir, Patrick Stump, Mavis Staples and Booker T, among others, for the musical protest on April 25.

Non-musicians will include Sting's actress wife Trudie Styler, filmmaker James Cameron and civil rights activist Reverend Jesse Jackson. The rally will coincide with the 40th anniversary of Earth Day and those taking part hope to persuade members of Congress to pass an effective and equitable climate and clean energy bill.

Sting himself was recently slammed by angry activist over his marijuana campaign. After raising support from fans to release activists who campaign for those jailed for no-violent drug offenses from jail, upset anti-drug activists stated, "Sting should stick to singing and not meddle in matters he doesn't understand. We do not need pop stars coming out and making irresponsible statements like that."
