Live Earth

One of the world issues that concern Madonna is the climate change. She has certainly made her point in her Interlude video of “Sorry” (remix) at her previous tour (Confessions). So when Al Gore asked her to be a part of the first series of benefit concerts -named Live Earth- that would be held on July 7th, 2007, she was more than happy to do it!

Madonna performed 4 songs at the Wembley Stadium in London. She opened her show with a new song called “Hey you” which is co-written and co-produced by Pharell especially for that event. She also did the identical performances of “Ray of Light” and “Hung Up” as in the Confessions Tour but for “La Isla Bonita” she brought her Gypsi Romani friends from Gogol Bordello to mix it up with their song “Lele pala tute”.
