NEW YORK (AP) - New Jersey shore hero Bruce Springsteen is the opening act in a benefit concert to help neighbors in the New York metropolitan area hit hard by Superstorm Sandy.
Springsteen and his E Street Band began Wednesday’s concert with a roar and call to arms in “Land of Hope and Dreams” and “Wrecking Ball.”
The sold-out show is being broadcast worldwide on television, in theaters, online and on radio.
From ticket sales alone, the concert already has raised more than $30 million to help Sandy victims in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. The October storm left millions of people without heat or electricity for weeks.
