On December 12, the Hurricane Sandy benefit concert at Madison Square Garden will be televised by HBO, AMC, Showtime and Sundance channels, among others — including networks in Italy and Brazil. The show will also be live streamed by Hulu, Yahoo and AOL. The show will benefit the victims of the storm across the East Coast through the Robin Hood Relief Fund.
Acts slated for the event include Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, the Who, Paul McCartney, Jon Bon Jovi, Kanye West, Alicia Keys, Dave Grohl and Eddie Vedder. Cablevision’s James Dolan, Clear Channel’s John Sykes and Harvey Weinstein are producing.
Additional networks are expected to join in.
