12.12.12 (The Concert for Sandy Relief)
Following the events of September 11, 2001, the music community came together to remember and honor the victims in what would become one of the most star-studded performances in history. The same organizers behind the Concert for New York City are hosting a fund-raising music event for victims of Hurricane Sandy on December 12 at Madison Square Garden. Dubbed "12.12.12 (The Concert for Sandy Relief)," the lineup includes Bon Jovi, Paul McCartney, The Who, Kanye West, Billy Joel and Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, with more artists slated to join the bill. Proceeds from the concert will directly benefit those in the tri-state area affected by Hurricane Sandy, through the Robin Hood Foundation. It's sure to lift New Yorkers' spirits.
