Several amazing artists are joining forces tonight in Madison Square Garden for the 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy Relief Concert. Big names like Bon Jovi, Eric Clapton, Billy Joel, Alecia Keys, The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, The Who, Roger Waters and Sir Paul McCartney are among the seemingly endless list of performers.
For its first couple decades of existence, the Super Bowl halftime show featured marching bands or “Up With People”-type musical medleys. Unfortunately, but the only folks who really got excited about those performances were the families of the performers.
Over the last 20 years, the Super Bowl halftime stage has become home to top hits and the increased star powers of popular musical acts.
