A Hurricane Sandy benefit concert is scheduled to take place on Dec. 12 with musicians like Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Alicia Keys, Jon Bon Jovi and Kanye West joining together to perform at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Paul McCartney, Roger Waters and The Who are also scheduled to perform at the benefit concert for the Robin Hood Relief Fund's Hurricane Sandy efforts to help rebuild the ravaged tri-state area that was affected by the super storm late last month. The concert, tentatively called "12.12.12", will be put together by Clear Channel Media and Entertainment, The Madison Square Garden Company and the group that produced the 9/11 benefit "The Concert for New York City" known as The Weinstein Company.
While the details concerning tickets, VIP ticket packages and telecast information have yet to be disclosed, the 121212concert.org website is up-to date to keep people informed about the upcoming event aimed at providing finances and materials to organizations and families hit hardest by the storm that affected the tri-state area.
"As the tri-state region begins to recover from Sandy's stunning and acute devastation along the coastal areas of Long Island, Queens, Staten Island, Connecticut and New Jersey, there remains an enormous task of rebuilding both the infrastructure and thousands of shattered lives," the website states about the benefit event. "'12.12.12' presents an important opportunity for the community and nation to come together to provide significant support to these communities as they confront staggering short- and long-term issues."
The website also provides a link for those who choose to donate directly to the Robin Hood Relief Fund and prompts people to "Like" their Facebook page in order to stay abreast of all future information concerning the concert.
Some people took to Twitter to express their excitement for the upcoming event.
