The Benefit Concert For Hurricane Sandy Victims Takes Place On December 12 And Will Be Televised

Kristen Stewart And The Rolling Stones Join Lineup For 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy Benefit Concert

Kristen Stewart and The Rolling Stones have joined the line-up for the 12-12-12 benefit concert for Hurricane Sandy victims.

The Stones were persuaded to get involved during a rehearsal for their Saturday show at the Barclays Center. Two of the producers — John Sykes of Clear Channel Media and movie producer Harvey Weinstein — made the trip to Brooklyn to personally appeal to the band.

“Mick said ‘The Rolling Stones pop group is in,'” Mr. Weinstein said at the press conference at Madison Square Garden on Friday.

The addition of The Rolling Stones makes the 12-12-12 concert one of the largest gatherings of big-name, stadium rock musicians in modern times.

The show will be held at the legendary Madison Square Garden on Wednesday.

So far the line-up includes Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, The Who, Roger Waters, Billy Joel, Kanye West, Chris Martin, Alicia Keys, Dave Grohl, Eddie Vedder and Kanye West.
