12-12-12 Concert For Sandy Relief. Started at 730pm, finished at 1:45am.
Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi blew minds of New Jersey-ians. R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe came out of retirement. Eddie Vedder joined Roger Waters for a Pink Floyd classic. Kanye West wore a kilt – which soon got it’s own Twitter handle (and over 1,000 followers!). Jay-Z was a no-show. And, apparently, Paul McCartney has joined a new band… with the surviving members of Nirvana. It all was part of 12.12.12 The Concert For Sandy Relief benefitting the Robin Hood Foundation.
Looks like Paul McCartney and Dave Grohl won’t be the only duet tonight at NYC’s 12-12-12 Concert for Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
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.
Dixie Chicks singer Natalie Maines has covered Roger Waters route for an upcoming documentary surrounding the nearly 20-year-long West Memphis Three ordeal. Maines, who had been an outspoken opponent of the imprisonment of the three men, recorded a version of the Pink Floyd classic “Mother” for the documentary West of Memphis: Voices of Justice, which is coming out on January 15th.
Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters turned rock’n'roll theater into real-life entertainment with his top-grossing “The Wall” tour, but now the singer/bassist will try his hand at professional theater.
Thursday night, New York City’s Beacon Theatre hosted The Bob Woodruff Foundation’s sixth annual “Stand Up For Heroes” event. A part of the yearly New York Comedy Festival, the event features comedians and musicians performing to raise funds for the organization, which works to provide resources and support to injured service members, veterans and their families.
You will soon be able to take David Gilmour anywhere you go, plus former Floyd bassist Roger Waters is working on a new album tentatively title ‘Heartland.’
Thursday night (November 8), Roger Waters will take the stage at New York’s Beacon Theater for the annual Stand Up For Heroes benefit. Part of the New York Comedy Festival (not a festival one would immediately associate Waters with), the event usually features comedians doing standup, although it’s been customary for Bruce Springsteen to perform at the show as well, telling a few jokes and doing a couple of solo acoustic songs.
Waters, who just wrapped up a huge three year tour where he performed Pink Floyd’s The Wall every night, will be playing in relatively stripped down surroundings. Coincidentally, the one time when Waters performed with Helm was at Waters’ one-off performance of The Wall in Germany on July 21, 1990.
