12-12-12 Sandy Relief Concert

Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi

Wednesday I had the opportunity to document the 12-12-12 Sandy Relief Concert at Madison Square Garden for The Robin Hood Foundation.

Now, I’ve photographed many concerts in my photographic career, but this one takes the cake. Not only was it the longest, starting at 7:30pm and ending at 1:30am, but it had the most star-studded lineup featuring The Rolling Stones, Bon Jovi, Eric Clapton, Dave Grohl, Billy Joel, Alicia Keys, Chris Martin, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, Eddie Vedder, Roger Waters, Kanye West, The Who, and Paul McCartney. All the proceeds went go to the Robin Hood Relief Fund.

I was tasked with documenting the evening, everything from meet-and-greets, pre-parties, backstage, a telethon, the performances, and of course all the various branding relating to Robin Hood Foundation and the sponsors of the event.

Not only was the concert awesome, but I was simply amazed to see so many famous faces and talented individuals in one place at one time.

Enjoy just a few of my selects from the evening.
