Madison Square Garden, Midtown West Wednesday December 12 2012 19:30
Musical benefits for Hurricane Sandy victims are springing up all over the city, but in terms of sheer star wattage, none ranks anywhere near this MSG mega-gig. Feast your eyes on this lineup, folks: Bruce, Paul and Kanye—last names superfluous, we trust—plus Roger Waters, Billy Joel, the Who, Dave Grohl, Bon Jovi, Alicia Keys, Eddie Vedder and yes, folks, the Rolling Stones, not to mention inevitable surprise guests. Okay, so maybe the roster is a little dude-heavy, but still, you know you want to see this.
