No Live Earth in Brazil?

Live Earth

Rumors are starting to float that Saturday’s Live Earth concert in Rio may be nixed. The Brazilian state prosecutor’s office apparently filed a motion to cancel the concert, which is supposed to feature Pharrell, Macy Gray, and Lenny Kravitz because they feel that security would be stretched too thin with preparations for the upcoming Pan-American games going on as well. Their argument was that they couldn’t guarantee the safety of the 3 to 4 million people who were expected to attend.

All the other concerts appear to be going ahead as scheduled, but a quick glance at the Live Earth web site doesn’t list Rio as a location.
