Three-hour Live Earth on NBC had mostly enjoyable musical performances
14 July 2007 | by tavmSee all my reviews

Just finished watching the Live Earth three-hour concert version that I taped from NBC last weekend. Performance highlights include: John Mayer's "We Keep Waiting for the World to Change", a reunited Genesis' "Land of Confusion", Alicia Keys' "Mercy, Mercy, Me" which blended into Corrine Bailey Rae's version in the middle of the song, Kelly Clarkson's "Since You've Been Gone", Roger Waters' version of his group Pink Floyd's "Another Brick in the Wall" (though I was surprised at it's inclusion) and the recently reunited Police's "Message in a Bottle". There were also good performances from Madonna, Bon Jovi, Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks, The Dave Matthews Band, The Black-Eyed Peas, and Duran Duran. Additionally, they showed snippets of musical acts in China, Japan, and Australia (which showed an edited version of Crowded House's "Don't Dream It's Over" that I was disappointed with). All that plus hosts Ann Curry and Carson Daly interviewing public figures like Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Al Gore (Curry) and musicians like Keys and Matthews and actors like Rosario Dawson and Cameron Diaz (Daly). All in all, a mostly enjoyable concert with important pro-environmental messages spread throughout ending with a clip of James Blunt singing "What a Wonderful World".
