Rock legends join today’s superstars to benefit Hurricane Sandy relief.
When Superstorm Sandy hit the East Coast a little more than a month ago, it felt like the entire world reached out to show their support. Here at MTV, we were proud to host the “Restore The Shore” special to raise funds to rebuild in New Jersey. We’ve had some time to heal and rebuild since the storm hit, but many realize there is still TONS of work left to do before we’re totally back to normal. That’s why so many music icons have joined together for “12/12/12 — The Concert For Sandy Relief,” a benefit show featuring rock legends such as Paul McCartney, The Who, Billy Joel, and Bon Jovi, as well as chart toppers of today like Alicia Keys, Kanye West, and Chris Martin of Coldplay.
The concert, taking place at New York City’s Madison Square Garden, will benefit the Robin Hood Relief Fund, which works with local organizations serving people hit hardest by the storm in the tristate area. Although tickets to the show are sold out, everyone can watch along online via live stream on Wednesday Dec. 12, at 7:30 p.m. ET. The show is stacked with a once-in-a-lifetime lineup (make it a family activity — your dad can watch for Paul McCartney and The Who, and YOU can watch for Alicia Keys and Kanye, unless you’re also into the classic rock, in which case, YOU rock) — be sure to tune in and donate if you can.
