Hurricane Sandy Concert: 12-12-12
Watching Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi performing Born to Run, it doesn't get any better than that. The Hurricane Sandy concert is 5 hours and judging from the first half hour, it's going to be an incredible show. The Rolling Stones and the Who will also perform, among others. Billy Crystal is hosting and he's funny again. Celebrities are manning the phone banks.
Two billion people world-wide can watch.
All money donated goes to the Robin Hood Relief fund. There's a lot of ways to donate. Here's one. Or you can call 1-855-465-HELP. You can also help by ordering the music from the concert on iTunes. [More...]
Here's a picture of the production schedule.
What did Mick Jagger do after the concert? He went home to watch a live British cricket game with his girlfriend, L'Wren Scott. He sent out a goodnight tweet an hour ago, at 12:18 a.m. ET. Here they are last night at Barney's for the party for L'Wren's new perfume. He also did the top ten on Letterman last night, if you missed it you can watch here.
The final Stones concert for this leg of their anniversary tour is Saturday night. Appearing with them: Springsteen, Lady Gaga and the Black Keys. I've already ordered the Pay Per View to watch it live.
If anyone was wondering what Roger Daltry's chest looked liked in 1975, here's a picture.
Who was your favorite tonight? No surprise here, mine were Bon Jovi and the Rolling Stones.
