Big names in the music industry joined forces on 12-12-12 for The Concert for Sandy relief at Madison Square Garden in New York. Musicians including Bruce Springsteen, Eric Clapton, Eddie Vedder, and Roger Waters all took turns wowing the audience for the victims of the storm; everything was going great until Roger Daltrey unbuttoned his shirt.
Yahoo! News reported that the lead singer of The Who flooded Twitter during his long performance on stage, which included unveiling his tan and rather built body to the audience.
“I would like to donate to the relief fund and donate a turtleneck sweater to Roger Daltrey,” Paul Pabst joked.
“Can I carve my initials into Roger Daltrey’s chest?” Kathleen Schmidt tweeted.
“From the looks of the old British rockers,” actor Thomas Lennon tweeted, “NYC’s yoga studios must be JAMMED this week.”
“Roger,” Jack Fagan tweeted, “even the Red Hot Chili Peppers wear shirts now.”
“Hulk Hogan thinks Roger Daltrey should button up,” Twitter user @fangsbites wrote.
“Daltrey just buttoned up his shirt,” Ritch Duncan reported. “My guess is he caught a glimpse of the live Twitter feed above the stage.”
The other incident that captivated Twitter members was Kanye West’s outfit.
“Kanye would [look] less ridiculous in this @JerrySeinfeld outfit,” @The7Line tweeted, linking to a screengrab from “The Puffy Shirt” episode.
“Is Kanye wearing a kilt?” more than a few Twitter users asked.
“Concert officials have announced plans for a new benefit for the victims of the @kanyewest performance,” Jared Lyons joked.
“Before the show, Kanye fought a 14-year-old goth girl over the last XL leather skirt & jeggings at the Hot Topics clearance rack,” Rachel Wescott tweeted.
Overall, audiences were disappointed by the concert’s length. According to Yahoo! News, the entire event lasted about six hours.
