Still Missing 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Dance like nobody is watching!
If there was an Olympic event I'm sure I would leave with the "gold" poop medal

Sandy Concert, You Watching?

Great to see this on, not sure why it took so long to get it together.

Think some have forgotten the true disaster this actually is and continues to be.

Wanted to thank the folks that reached out to me for my family in Breezy Point, NY. The strangers and friends here on the DIS really warmed my heart.

I have a great update they have been given a small manufactured house (trailer) in CT. They go to see it tomorrow!!!!!

Springsteen's set is a snoozefest. I know he's practically a national hero, but I never saw the appeal.

We're watching, doesn't hurt that Bon Jovi has joined Springsteen on stage. I hope everyone will get the support they need to start the recovery process and rebuilding.

Now, that's what I call Jersey Strong!



Great concert so far. Hope it helps!

Couldn't disagree more. Springsteen.....

There was a concert within days of Sandy (on Television). This concert took more time to arrange, in part because Springsteen is actively touring the US. Dates that were established long ago. And, you couldn't do this concert without Bruce. He is synonymous with NY and NJ.

Yes, I'm watching. We were pretty lucky in that our damage was pretty minimal, but parts of my town and neighboring towns were wiped out, so this cause is near and dear to my heart.

And it doesn't hurt that, to me, the idea of members of the Beatles, Stones and the Who together on the same bill is just a little bit epic!

With a little bit of Pink Floyd thrown in for good measure.

Gotta admit, it's been a loooong time since I've listened to some Pink Floyd music, but I'm really enjoying this set.

Ha, I was thinking the same thing. When Bon Jovi came out and the two of them sang 'Born to Run' I was positively cringing and had to mute the tv!
I know it's all one's personal preference, though - I'm a big Stones fan and while I was watching them perform my fb friends were all saying they couldn't turn off the HD fast enough

Nope I'm not and I won't. When Irene nailed VT we didn't get any concerts. I've sent stuff down to NJ via local trucks that I knew the drivers and radio stations involved so it's not that I don't feel bad for them we've lived through it. I have friends that their families graves are still missing.....

I agree, their have been numerous disasters in other parts of the country that don't get televised concerts/fundraisers.

Wow...what's the matter with the two of you? I mean you won't? Why, you don't have to donate to listen to good music

No one says you have to donate. I mean I am not donating anything. I have a roof to fix. And Irene destroyed my basement last year with over 30k of damages, and my insurance only covered 1/3 of that. I am more annoyed at my town for what they didn't do then for my town vs their bending over backwards now for Sandy.. but still, that doesn't mean I am not going to watch a concert or be like poor me or whoever why didn't someone do something for them .

I really don't understand that attitude at all. There are organizations that pull together for other disasters. Is the North East supposed to apologize for having so many celebrities wanting to help? Most of them have home's in NY and are from the area and still live here. They want to help fix THEIR city/state and this is the way they are doing it.

Geez... were is your sympathy??
