Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen and Jimmy Fallon Will Help Raise Money for Sandy Victims
Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi, Christina Aguilera and Sting will perform during the Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together telethon on NBC Friday night. The show will benefit the Red Cross and raise funds and awareness for victims of Hurricane Sandy. Jimmy Fallon, who celebrated Halloween by dressing as Bob Dylan and singing “Trick or Treat, Smell My Feet,” will also participate in the telethon. Matt Lauer will host the telethon.
NBC will tape the show at their New York Rockefeller Center headquarters and other networks will possibly air the broadcast simultaneously. The telethon is slated to start at 8 PM and air without commercial breaks. The networks hosted similar telethons after 9/11.
Springsteen and Joel dubbed their collaboration at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s 25th anniversary celebration the “Bridge and Tunnel Reunion.”
