“12-12-12” will be distributed worldwide to nearly two billion people through television feeds, radio and online streaming. It will be available to all 114 million television households in the US and to more than 400 million television households outside the country via networks and feeds in North and South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia.

The all-star line-up for “12-12-12” includes The Rolling Stones, Bon Jovi, Eric Clapton, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, Dave Grohl, Billy Joel, Alicia Keys, Chris Martin, Eddie Vedder, Roger Waters, Kanye West, The Who and Sir Paul McCartney.

Tommy Hilfiger has generously agreed to donate t-shirts as part of the merchandise offerings for “12-12-12”. Many of the celebrities involved will also be on-hand to lend their star power and participate in a telethon during the “12-12-12” telecast.

Thanks to the generosity of concert organizers, sponsors, and Robin Hood's board of directors, every single penny will go to organizations serving the victims of Hurricane Sandy through the Robin Hood Relief Fund. The Robin Hood Relief Fund provides money, material and know-how to local organizations that are serving families and individuals in the regions hardest hit by the storm.

The concert is being produced by James Dolan, Executive Chairman of The Madison Square Garden Company; John Sykes, President of Clear Channel Entertainment Enterprises; and Harvey Weinstein, Co-Founder and Chairman of The Weinstein Company.
