A Show too Far

live-earthI have huge sympathy for the Live Earth organisers – how do you get complex messages across to a mass audience, to effect behaviour, educate and cause political movement on difficult issues.

The answer is that it’s not easy. For example, nuclear power seems a sensible solution to minimising green house gasses however some of the bands wore t-shirts opposing it.

And if music is the answer then presumably the bigger the bands on stage, the better the success. In which case having Duran Duran (re-heated left-overs from the Diana concert the week before) is not a good sign.

During a prolonged instrumental segment by Genesis its very hard to justify humaity’s right to live much longer on this planet.

You’re left feeling that Sir Bob Geldof was right – its just another pop concert – and not a very good one at that.

Ugli Tree Rating: Bad enough to force people to turn off their tellies – good for the environment.
