Al Gore to visit Live Earth concert

Former U.S. vice president and anti-global warming crusader Al Gore is going to attend the July 7 Live Earth concert in New Jersey.

Gore is working with Kevin Wall to stage a series of concerts around the world in order to draw attention to global warming. The concerts will feature such stars as Madonna, the Beastie Boys, James Blunt, Rihanna, Akon and John Mayer.

Wall, who produced the Live 8 concerts in 2005 designed to fight poverty, told The Star-Ledger of Newark that he would be attending the London show.

"Mr. Gore will be in New Jersey. He'll be off and on (the stage), very involved," Wall said.

After his failed presidential run against President George W. Bush in 2000, Gore left politics and has focused his efforts on raising awareness about global warming. His documentary "An Inconvenient Truth," which is about global warming, won an Oscar earlier this year.

Other Live Earth concerts will be held in London; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Tokyo; Sydney, Australia; Shanghai, China; Johannesburg, South Africa; and Hamburg, Germany. A concert slated for Istanbul, Turkey had to be cancelled for lack of sponsors and interest.
