(KSL News) The biggest concert event ever has just gotten bigger. A ninth Live Earth show has been added in the nation's capital. Garth Brooks and Tricia Yearwood will headline the show tomorrow on the National Mall.

The concerts to spread the word about global warming start tonight in Australia and continue west to Tokyo, Shanghai, Hamburg, London, Johannesburg, New Jersey and Rio.

A smaller show will be held in Antarctica, so all seven continents will be represented. The worldwide lineup of more than 150 artists includes Madonna, Kelly Clarkson, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Black-Eyed Peas, Metallica, Fall Out Boy, the Police, Genesis and a reunited Spinal Tap. Live Earth partner Al Gore says, "It is a chance to get the world's attention, for a wake-up call, SOS, and to ask people to answer the call.

Organizers say two billion people will tune into the worldwide event either on TV or through the Internet.

Cable channels MSNBC and Bravo will broadcast Live Earth. For more information on broadcast times or to watch Live Earth online, go to the related link on the right.
