Sandy Relief Concert Tonight

Posted By on Wed, Dec 12, 2012 at 9:17 AM

I usually don't watch these benefit concerts because they have the same acts performing every time but this show might be one to tune into.
They are saying that this "12.12.12. The Concert For Sandy Relief" will be the largest viewed concert in music history. News stories are saying it will reach more than 2 billion people through over 30 different networks and social media sites. Way to go America!
The response by people everywhere have been great and if you'd still like to help the cause, the Robin Hood Relief Fund is it.
Some of the big time acts you'll be able to see tonight at Madison Square Garden include Bruce Springsteen, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Eric Clapton and Billy Joel.
But that's not all. On my way to work this morning, I heard on the radio that Dave Grohl and the other original members of Nirvana were going to play a few of their songs at the concert.
I was instantly wondering who was going to sing lead vocals and they announced that none other than Paul McCartney was going to jump in.
This should be interesting but absolutely epic. Who would of ever thought that one of the Beatles would sing a couple of Nirvana songs live.
Be part of music history tonight at 4:30, I know I will.
