This concert is said to have arguably the greatest lineup of any concert ever, now that is saying a lot, but when you look at the performers tonight and guest speakers it is a pretty impressive group. The show will kick off in star studded fashion as Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street band will be the opening act around 7:30 p.m.
Other performers throughout the night will include Hip Hop & R&B star Kanye West and the beautiful Alicia Keys. Along with them will be music icons and ageless wonders Bon Jovi, Paul McCartney, and Billy Joel. Other artist such as Eric Clapton, Dave Grohl, Chris Martin, Roger Waters, and Eddie Vedder round out the individual performers. While bands like The Rolling Stones and The Who will undoubtedly please the audience.
“There really is not going to be any down time in this show, we are going to start will one of the world’s greatest artist and end with one of the world’s greatest artist, with a lot of great artist in-between,” Producer John Sykes said in a statement to the press.
There will also be a group of celebrities including Leonardo Dicaprio, Kristen Stewart, Jon Stewart, and Jake Gyllenhaal that will tell the stories of those who were affected by hurricane Sandy.
