Bon Jovi to headline Live Earth

Jon Bon Jovi
The concert will be broadcast worldwide on 7 December

Bon Jovi and Pink Floyd's Roger Waters are among the stars set to headline a Live Earth concert in India next month.

The event's founder, former US Vice President Al Gore, will also be on hand to talk about climate issues.

Other stars attending include Bollywood's Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and the Black Eyed Peas' Will.I.Am.

The concert takes place on 7 December in Mumbai - the sole venue for the event. Nine cities hosted the first Live Earth concerts in 2007.

Stars from around the world took part in concerts in cities including London, Johannesburg and Toyko on 7 July last year to highlight global warming.

Money raised from this year's concert will be donated to Climate Project India to help fund their educational programs and renewable energy projects. Money will also go to TERI's Light a Billion Lives campaign which provides solar lighting to rural homes without electricity.
