There have been Sandy benefits aplenty since the storm hit, but perhaps nothing bigger has been attempted than the just 12.12.12 Concert for Sandy Relief featuring: Alicia Keys, Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band, Kanye West, Paul McCartney, Rogers Waters, Jon Bon Jovi, The Who and other performers to come.
A joint effort by major players in film, music and live events, 12-12-12 is being produced by Madison Square Garden Company executive chairman James Dolan, Clear Channel Entertainment Enterprises president John Sykes and co-founder and chairman of The Weinstein Company, Harvey Weinstein.
“’12-12-12’ is shaping up to be a showcase of music royalty,” the producers said in a joint statement. “The response from the entertainment community to help those most affected by Hurricane Sandy has been nothing short of astounding. We expect to announce additional legendary performers in the near future and we are confident that the event will ensure those in need will not be forgotten, and vital aid will be directed to rebuilding our communities along the East Coast.” [Pollstar.com]
