YMO REUNITE FOR 1 GIG
Some groups do it for money, some groups do it when solo careers don't pan out, and some do it because they can finally sit in the same room again. Other groups do it for a great cause. In this case original Yellow Magic Orchestra (YMO) members Haruomi Hosono, Yukihiro Takahashi, and Ryuichi Sakamoto have re-formed to help the Live Earth cause with a special performance in Kyoto, Japan on 7.7.07.

Live Earth Founder and Producer Kevin Wall joined with Tatsu Kitagawa, the principal of the Live Earth Japan office, at a press conference to announce the special Yellow Magic Orchestra reunion and complete artist lineup and ticketing information for Live Earth Japan. Wall announced that Japan is the only country hosting two events as part of the 24-hour, 7-continent Live Earth concert series to combat global warming. Makuhari Messe in Tokyo will host a daylong Live Earth Tokyo concert. A special broadcast event will be held at the To-ji Buddhist Temple in Kyoto later in the day.

Live Earth will begin in Sydney, Australia on July 7, 2007 and continue across all 7 continents with official concerts in Japan; Shanghai, China; Johannesburg, South Africa; London, United Kingdom; Hamburg, Germany; Istanbul, Turkey; and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, before concluding in New Jersey, United States.

Live Earth Tokyo will feature the following acts live on stage: AI, Ai Otsuka, Ayaka Cocco, Genki Rockets, Kumi Koda, Linkin Park, Rihanna Rize, and others to be announced at a later date.

In addition to Yellow Magic Orchestra, the special Kyoto event will also feature Michael Nyman, Rip Slyme, and others to be announced at a later date.

Ticket prices for the special music event in Kyoto are: SS/JPY15,000, S/JPY9,000, A (standing) /JPY7, 000. Kyoto tickets are available exclusively via eplus internet access: eee.eplus.co.jp. The information service of the Kyoto event is: 0570-06-9985

"Live Earth is about engaging an unprecedented audience with solutions to the climate crisis," said Wall. "This blockbuster lineup of chart-topping Japanese and international music acts will help Live Earth reach its goal by attracting a huge audience in Japan, Asia and the rest of the world."

Live Earth marks the beginning of a multi-year campaign led by the Alliance for Climate Protection and other international non-governmental organizations to move individuals, corporations and governments to take action to solve global warming. Former Vice President of the United States Al Gore is the Chair of the Alliance for Climate Protection and a Partner of Live Earth. "Live Earth is taking place across all seven continents because the climate crisis affects us all, and all of us must be a part of the solution," Gore said. "Live Earth will engage individuals, corporations and governments to take action against the climate crisis."

Live Earth Japan will be broadcast on NHK and Fuji Television Broadcast Company, and to more than 100 countries worldwide as part of the global television feed.
