As a huge Stones fan, I'd really like to see this happen.

Proceeds from 12-12-12 will go to the Robin Hood Relief Fund to benefit those affected by Sandy in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

Information regarding the telecast of the concert will be posted at www.121212concert.org.

On Nov. 2, Springsteen, Jovi and Joel played NBC's live one-hour benefit telethon, "Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together."

Christina Aguilera, Sting and Jimmy Fallon also performed.

NBC reported the event raised nearly $23 million for the American Red Cross relief efforts for Hurricane Sandy.
