Tue, 11 Dec 2012 13:38:27
In an effort to share the 12-12-12 benefit concert for Hurricane Sandy Relief with those impacted by the storm and beyond, the event will be simulcast live in select movie theaters in hurricane-affected areas.
This presentation will be free of charge to all attendees and complimentary refreshments will be provided. Free tickets are available now at participating theater box offices, and will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis.
How awesome is that?
Event producers James Dolan, John Sykes and Harvey Weinstein said the following in a joint statement:
"The live simulcast of this historic benefit concert in movie theatres will provide a welcome opportunity for those people still recovering from the devastation to have an enjoyable and much-needed night out. Seeing this incredible all-star lineup on the big screen and hearing it in surround sound will certainly make for a memorable evening."
The concert, which will be held at Madison Square Garden to benefit the Robin Hood Relief Fund, will feature 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.
