The Rolling Stones have been added to New York City’s 12.12.12 concert taking place next week (on, as it’s name suggests, December 12). Dubbed “The Concert For Sandy Relief,” the show, which takes place at Madison Square Garden, will raise money to help provide assistance to the millions of people throughout the tri-state area who have been affected by Hurricane Sandy.
With a little help from musical pals like The Boss, Hurricane Sandy telethon “Coming Together” raised $23 million for relief efforts via the American Red Cross.
