Show Premise

The series is set on the road in a 10-city tour across America, in which Ludacris and Tommy Lee (and their respective teams) battle against each other to see who can keep their act “more green”. Throughout the tour they also battle to get the word out about the state of the environment. The battle culminates in a “green” carpet benefit concert at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, California.

The winner of the 10-part battle gets to headline the concert while the loser faces shame as the opening act. The concert raised over $33,000 including a donation from Treeland, benefiting the renewal of Griffith Park which was devastated by recent wildfires. Musical acts featured in the benefit concert and final episode of the series include: Tommy Lee, Ludacris, Comedian Tommy Davidson, Train, Switchfoot, Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top with Slash and Duff McKagan, Ziggy Marley, The Blue Man Group, Robby Krieger of the Doors, Bowling for Soup, Dee Snider and Rock Star Supernova.

Famous quotes containing the words premise and/or show:

    We have to give ourselves—men in particular—permission to really be with and get to know our children. The premise is that taking care of kids can be a pain in the ass, and it is frustrating and agonizing, but also gratifying and enjoyable. When a little kid says, “I love you, Daddy,” or cries and you comfort her or him, life becomes a richer experience.
    —Anonymous Father. Ourselves and Our Children, by Boston Women’s Health Book Collective, ch. 3 (1978)

    Photographers never have much incentive to show the world as it is.
