It was a night of music, comedy and celebrities at “12.12.12 — The Concert for Sandy Relief,” held at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Wednesday night.

While several top artists in the rock and pop genres performed for the MSG crowd, actors such as James Gandolfini, Jimmy Fallon and Jack McBrayer manned a phone bank where they accepted donations from viewers.

Forty cable networks televised and numerous websites streamed the event, the proceeds of which benefited The Robin Hood Relief Fund and victims of Superstorm Sandy. More than $30 million was raised through ticket sales alone.

    Didn't watch it. I am tired of do gooder celebrities raising money but do not make sure it gets to the people who need it. Someone can make a heap of money but the distribution of it is the key. FEMA didn't do their job with the taxpayer's money and now these celebrities just lined someone else's pockets, again!

    For Sandy relief, yeah right! I wonder how much of the money actually got to the victims of Sandy. Probably less than 10%.

    Why should I watch a concert for a botched disaster relief effort.

    Was not interested at all and it sounded like help for people who went to the beach and couldn't find a shower.

    I just hope that the money raised gets to the people who need it. These fund raisers are notorious for mismanagement.

    Of what I saw I thought it was great, I found a station it was on around when the Stones were finishing their set and I saw up to Chris Martin before I fell asleep, but of what I saw it was fantastic!

    Thanks man. I'm in my 60's and that makes it a special reason to send the bucks. Thanks again. Great concert. Included the Beatles too. That's special.

    I didn't see it. I didn't hear about it. It sounds like a strange affair. I don't suppose there were any decent metal bands playing.
