Rock For Recovery; a rock concert benefiting Hurricane Sandy victims in the Greater New York Area, was held Thursday night, January 17, 2013 at the Gramercy Theater in Manhattan.

Tickets were on sale for $25 at livenation.com or at the Gramercy box office.

Sid Wilson of Slipknot, Adam Gontier, Art of Dying, Hurt, Smile, Empty Soul and Edisun joined Sirius XM DJ Kayla Riley, Live Nation and Ghost Rocket for live acoustic performances.

Items from ESP Guitars, Affliction Clothing and Live Nation were auctioned throughout the evening with all the proceeds donated directly to Hurricane Sandy victims in the city.

Back in October of 2012, New York City and the immediate surrounding area were pummeled by Hurricane Sandy leaving thousands of New Yorkers homeless or displaced. Multiple events have been planned in the wake of the storm because New York was so poorly prepared for what happened that fateful week.
