Aside from the obvious themes of saving the planet at today's Live Earth mega-concert, a musical theme emerged: bands reunited. It's as if the message was, "If these bands can get their acts back together, the least fans can do is get it together for the earth."
The trend started off at the first show in the Live Earth series as Aussie band Crowded House took the stage in Sydney. After a somehow-appropriate mid-song electrical outage, frontman Neil Finn joked that the "P.A. was still working." Later, in London, a closely-shorn Phil Collins and Genesis got the crowd on its feet with a powerful performance of 'Turn It on Again.'
Still to come, fans in New Jersey will be treated to performances from the original lineup of the Police and a semi-reformed Smashing Pumpkins.
