12-12-12 SANDY RE

LIEF CONCERT OPENS WITH THE BOSS, CLOSES WITH A BANG

Last night’s 12-12-12 benefit concert for the victims of Superstorm Sandy began with a brilliant four-song set by New Jersey’s own Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band and wrapped over five hours later with Paul McCartney being overrun by overkill on the smoke machines and pyrotechnics.. In between, veteran rockers including Roger Waters of Pink Floyd, Bon Jovi, Eric Clapton, the Rolling Stones, The Who and Billy Joel, along with Alicia Keys, Kanye West and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin treated the sold out crowd at New York’s Madison Square Garden to current and classic hits. Check out lots of great photos of many of the performers here. To donate to the Robin Hood Relief Fund, visit 121212concert.org.
