Rolling Stones Invited To Join 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy Benefit

The 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy benefit concert, set for New York City's Madison Square Garden for the date indicated in the show's title, may add the Rolling Stones to its impressive bill, according to a promoter for the show.

John Sykes, corporate radio exec and one of the organizers of the event, speaking with Rolling Stone magazine, did not rule out the possibility:

"There's been talk of that. The challenge is they have a full-blown dress rehearsal on the 12th or the 13th because their Pay Per View special is on the 15th. But, yeah, there have been conversations with them. Mick and Keith came out for the Concert for New York City 11 years ago and played on their own. They're well aware of the show and certainly have been invited to be part of it in any way, shape or form of the band."

The Stones play Newark, New Jersey as part of their 50th anny tour on the day after the benefit.
