In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, a benefit concert has been organized to take place at New York’s Madison Square Garden on December 12th. In case you aren’t around New York on the 12th, but want to catch the all star line up of musicians planned for the event, fear not, your TV has you covered.

HBO, Showtime, AMC, and the Sundance Channel have all announced plans to televise the concert in the US. The US seems to encompass the entire world however, so plans have also been announced for affiliates of Direct TV and the Sundance Channel to stream the show internationally.

The show itself will feature performances from a heavy list of headliners including:Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, the Who, Paul McCartney, Jon Bon Jovi, Kanye West, Alicia Keys, Dave Grohl, and Eddie Vedder, with more to be announced.

Cablevision’s James Dolan, Clear Channel President John Sykes, and Harvey Weinstein are producing the concert. Producers have said the show will most likely run into the four hour range in terms of length.

Proceeds from the show will go towards the Robin Hood Relief Fund, which is an offshoot of the Gotham-based philanthropic Robin Hood Foundation.
