The sensational gig brought the surviving members of the grunge band, Nirvana, together for the first time in 20 years. Former Beatles star Paul McCartney sang with them as they played a new song at the star-filled charity concert in New York City, reported The Sun

The concert also featured top artists such as Alicia Keys, Bruce Springsteen, The Rolling Stones and Jon Bon Jovi.

The musicians came together for the 12-12-12 concert for Sandy relief, which benefits the Robin Hood Foundation. Concert producer John Sykes told Reuters the concert raised $32 million through ticket sales and sponsorships alone.

12-12-12: The Concert for Sandy Relief “brought together a lineup so star-studded that a lineup of Grohl, Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic, unofficial fourth Nirvana member Pat Smear, and the former Beatles singer sounds almost plausible,” reports Spin.

The concert opened at Madison Square Garden with Bruce Springsteen and the Street band at 7:30 p.m. and continued until Paul McCartney closed well after midnight. Viewers could donate to the Robin Hood Fund Relief by calling in according to Fox News
