Live Earth concert, Rio de Janeiro

The Live Earth concert for South America was held at Copacabana Beach, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on July 7, 2007. It is one of two free Live Earth concerts, the other being held in Washington, D.C. It was the last concert to start during the day-long event. However, that didn't make it the last to finish, for the New York concert was still going on when things wrapped up in Rio. Lenny Kravitz was the headliner, playing a free gig there for the second time.

A few days before the event, a State prosecutor tried to cancel it, due to an alleged lack of police personnel to take care of security. However, the day after that, the concert was reinstated.
