The Live Earth India concert has been cancelled due to security fears after last week's attacks in Mumbai.

Bon Jovi and other acts started to cancel their plans after news of the attacks broke.

More than 170 people were killed as gunmen opened fire across the city.

With all the cancellations, organizers were forced to terminate the sold out concert that benefits a solar energy program. The show was set for December 7th.

Live Earth was created by Al Gore and partner Kevin Wall with previous shows taking place in London, Tokyo, and Sydney.

Organizers of Live Earth said that they were "shocked and saddened" by the attacks.

British singer Amar Dhanjan told BBC 6 Music, "It's just not important compared to what's happening there right now."
