Can’t make it to New York City for the huge Hurricane Sandy benefit concert? Well, now you can stay in your pajamas and watch it from the comfort of your own home.

The 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy Benefit Concert sold out within minutes on Monday, but good news! The show will be broadcast to the general public, and it will be done so in a variety of ways.

The lineup for this show continues to get bigger and bigger, seemingly every week and it was announced this morning that the concert will be shown on CBS, HBO, AMC, Showtime, VH1 Classic and PBS, among the bigger named networks. It will also be shown on several smaller cable and satellite channels. The Internet is also getting in on the fun. You can catch the 12-12-12 Concert on the websites for Vevo, Hulu, AOL, Yahoo and MTV.

The decision was also made to beam the concert into movie theaters and I already checked and it’s not going to be playing around here, but I guess the best part about that is that you can watch the concert in your underwear and no one’s going to arrest you for public indecency.

Among the acts announced to perform are Paul McCartney, Roger Waters, Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen and Eric Clapton. Concert organizers said that they wanted the show to be done on a global scale and boy did they ever. An official statement released says:

The fact that so many major media companies are joining forces to distribute and stream this important event to homes worldwide will enable us to create a tremendous and unprecedented fundraising effort on a global scale to benefit the victims of this devastating storm.

All money from ticket sales will go directly to those affected. Unfortunately, tickets for the sold out show are being scalped and some are going for as much as nine grand, which sparked some outrage yesterday. Online ticket retailer StubHub insists that all money that they make from the ticket sales will go to the Robin Hood Foundation and have also set up a way for users to donate on their website.

The show begins at 6:30pm Central time Wednesday, December 12.
