In addition to the live performances, the Live Earth DVD will also include six short films from the Live Earth Film Series and a documentary on the making of Live Earth shot by Award-winning filmmakers Nick Wickham and Emer Patten. The short films, some of which premiered at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival, were commissioned by Live Earth to utilize the power of film to educate a global audience through entertainment.
"This CD/DVD package gives audiences another opportunity to experience the excitement of the largest entertainment event in history, while re-engaging with the issue of the climate crisis," said Kevin Wall, Live Earth Founder & Chairman. "We believe music has the power to influence and this package is a chance to expose more people to the Live Earth concerts and message."
The digital album will become available globally for purchase via iTunes and all other participating digital retail outlets on November 13th. iTunes was the first to launch a pre-order campaign which began in earnest less than 24 hours after the actual July 7th event with an available for purchase instant download of John Mayer's compelling performance of "Waiting On The World To Change."
Live Earth's net proceeds from the sale of Live Earth - The Concerts For A Climate In Crisis will go to benefit the Alliance for Climate Protection, whose mission is to persuade the public about the importance and urgency of adopting and implementing effective and comprehensive solutions for the climate crisis.

Live Earth was a 7-continent, 24-hour music event that broke records on July 7, 2007. Recognized as the largest global entertainment event ever held, Live Earth secured 500 media partners from TV, radio, Internet and live audiences to broadcast the live concerts over the course of 24 hours, generating media attention and discussion in every corner of the globe to engage an estimated audience of 2 billion people on the issue of the climate crisis. Live Earth was founded by Kevin Wall, an Executive Producer of Live 8, an event that brought together one of the largest audiences in history to combat poverty. Wall formed a partnership with former U.S. Vice President Al Gore and the Alliance for Climate Protection to ensure that Live Earth inspires behavioral changes long after July 7, 2007.
