Earlier today I received this email from Al Gore pertaining to reserved tickets to Live Earth.
Following the successful delivery of more than 500,000 of your messages to Congress, I promised we would reserve a limited number of tickets to Live Earth for members of the AlGore.com community.
The concert is going to be an incredible experience you won't want to miss. More than 100 acts will perform on seven continents. In the United States it will be held at Giant's Stadium and feature bands ranging from The Police, to Dave Matthews Band, to Alicia Keys.
If you are interested in receiving information on how to purchase these special tickets, just fill out the Live Earth signup form at AlGore.com and I will send you an email before they go on sale.
If you have friends interested in seeing the show who are not yet members of the AlGore.com community invite them to sign up as well. The more we grow, the more powerful our movement will become and the faster we will be able to force real change.

Tickets for the New Jersey show will go on sale this Monday at 10 a.m. Proceeds raised by the Live Earth concerts will benefit the Alliance for Climate Protection, as well as other environmental organizations.
"We hope the energy created by Live Earth will jump start a massive public education effort," Gore said in a statement. "Live Earth will help us reach a tipping point that's needed to move corporations and governments to take decisive action to solve the climate crisis."
"Capping Live Earth with a blockbuster show like this will ensure we meet our challenge of building a mass audience to combat global warming," Live Earth founder and executive producer Kevin Wall added. "Live Earth will be a monumental event both in terms of entertainment and in turning the tide against global warming."
