Clear Channel Media and Entertainment, the Madison Square Garden Company and the Weinstein Company have revealed the initial details behind "12.12.12," their most ambitious benefit show since the "Concert For New York City" bill that backed recovery efforts after September 11th. Among the confirmed performers for next month's televised event are Kanye West, Paul McCartney, Alicia Keys and Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band.
"As the tri-state region begins to recover from [Hurricane] 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 companies said in a joint statement. "'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."
Proceeds from the concert will go to the Robin Hood Relief Fund, which you can donate to here. Check out the complete lineup below, and more details at the show's official site... more »
