Wednesday evening at 7:30 p.m. EST Americans can tune in to see what is promised to be the most widely distributed musical production ever to be presented live. The Concert for Sandy Relief will not only be available on television, but also on radio and the internet.

On TV, viewers can tune into HBO on cable or the ION network available on basic over-the-air TV. Though the big three networks and associated channels such as NBC and Fox are not carrying the benefit that will benefit the regions hit hard by Hurricane Sandy earlier this year, the mega-star concert will still be available to 114 million households across the country. Dubbed the 12-12-12 concert, it can also be heard on the iHeartRadio network as well as Internet streams such as Youtube, Hulu, Yahoo, and AOL.

The list of performers is an amazing lineup that includes a rare appearance by the Rolling Stones along with Sir Paul McCartney, Alicia Keys, The Who, Bruce Springsteen, and Billy Joel. Also on the docket to appear in some capacity are Billy Crystal, Leo DiCaprio, Jon Stewart, Kristen Stewart, Jimmy Fallon, Susan Sarandon, and Jake Gyllenhaal. Many others have also agreed to be a part of the broadcast.

The show will take place at New York's Madison Square Garden and will be repeated on HBO a couple of times in succession after the original broadcast. Start time is 7:30 p.m. on the east coast, 4:30 p.m. on the west coast.
