Updated Info for 12-12-12 Concert for Sandy
I have the updated lineup of artists who will perform this Wednesday in The Concert for Sandy Relief. There are also many choices on how to view the event.
The lineup of performers for this concert is incredible. So far, the artists scheduled to perform include Bon Jovi, Paul McCartney, Alicia Keys, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Billy Joel, Eddie Vedder, Dave Grohl, Kanye West, Roger Waters, Coldplay, Eric Clapton, The Who, and The Rolling Stones.
The concert will take place this Wednesday at Madison Square Garden at 7:30 pm.
You have several choices on how to view the event. If you want to see it live at Madison Square Garden, I wish you luck. At this point, obtaining face value tickets is near, if not impossible. Prices range from $150 to $2,500. I’ve heard reports of ticket re-sellers charging up to $38,000! Instead of spending the cash, wouldn’t it make more sense to donate that money?
Several movie theatre chains with venues in New Jersey will show The 12-12-12 Concert for Sandy at selected theatres. The best advice is to call the box office at one of the Clearview Cinemas, Bow Tie Cinemas, Frank Theatres, Marquee Cinemas, or National Amusements. Oh, by the way, published reports say the tickets are free and are available on a first come first serve basis.
If you want to watch it on TV, here’s the list of channels that will be carrying the concert:
AMC, AXS TV, BIO. Bloomberg, CBS, Cooking Channel, Destination America, Discovery Fit and Health, Encore, EPIX, FX Movie Channel, Fuse, G4, Hallmark Movie Channel, HBO, HBO Latino, IFC, ION Television, Lifetime Real Women, Military History, MSG, MSG Plus, mundoFOX, NJTV, Ovation, Palladia, SHOWTIME, Smithsonian Channel, Sundance Channel, Thirteen, VH1 Classic, and WEtv.
