Roger Waters will be playing at this year's Live Earth Concert in India. It will be the former Pink Floyd man's first appearance since the death of his old band mate, Richard Wright.

The Live Earth show will take place on December 7 in Mumbai, and will be headlined by Bon Jovi. Al Gore is also set to make an appearance.

Other names announced for the show include Anoushka Shankar, Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Hrithik Roshan, Preity Zinta, Bipasha Basu, Shiamak Davar, Farhan Akhtar, Arjun Rampal, Purab Kohli, Hard Kaur, Jalebee Cartel, Vishal & Shekhar, Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, Sunidhi Chauhan, Sonu Nigam and Shaan.

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.

That is indeed a shame.

Cant these young men form pop groups or go out and enjoy women and beer instead of blowing shit up?

I don't see why practically everyone else in the world wouldn't share the same sentiment.

It's a pity... this would've been Rog's last chance to do Leaving Beirut before he ran out of things to complain about. Uh-oh, time for another eight-year retirement period!
