Huge names in music are lending their talents to Hurricane Sandy relief efforts at the "12-12-12" concert on Wednesday.
Every penny sold from ticket sales will go directly to Sandy victims via the Robin Hood Relief Fund, which provides material, money and aid to local organizations that are serving families and individuals in the regions hardest hit by the storm, including over 200 Patch towns in New Jersey, in Connecticut and on Long Island.
The all-star lineup includes Bon Jovi, Eric Clapton, Dave Grohl, Billy Joel, Alicia Keys, Chris Martin, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, Eddie Vedder, Roger Waters, Kanye West, The Who and Paul McCartney, with other artists to be announced.
The concert will start at 7:30 p.m. EST on Dec. 12 and will be broadcast live from Madison Square Garden via a global network of U.S. and international television stations, Clear Channel radio stations and leading websites. Check the listings on this website to see where you can watch the concert locally.
WDVE will serve the Pittsburgh region as the local radio station airing the concert.
