Report: Bon Jovi to headline Live Earth India

Rockers Bon Jovi are to headline India's upcoming Live Earth concert, according to internet reports.

The 'Livin' On A Prayer' hitmakers will perform at the Andheri Sports Complex in Mumbai in December, according to sources.

Other major acts have yet to be confirmed, but Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan will also make an appearance.

The concert is being promoted by New Delhi-based scientist Rajendra Pachauri, who shared the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize with politician-turned-environmentalist

Al Gore, one of the brains behind the Live Earth concerts for climate control.

More than two billion people watched the original Live Earth concerts in Sydney, Johannesburg, New Jersey, Rio de Janeiro, Tokyo and London, among other world cities, last summer.

Bon Jovi performed at the New Jersey Live Earth concert at Giants Stadium alongside the Police and Roger Waters.
