Stories behind Robin Hood's 12-12-12 concert

Go behind-the-scenes with the Robin Hood Foundation's executive director as he describes organizing 12-12-12, a massive, star-studded concert

This week, Scott Pelley brought us the remarkable story of the Robin Hood Foundation, a unique charity that has figured out how to (as Pelley put it) shake wealthy donors "by their ankles" in order to help New Yorkers living in poverty. Back in 2012, Robin Hood also managed to shake the whole country by its ankles: They were the ones behind the televised 12-12-12 concert at Madison Square Garden, which raised $50 million to benefit victims of Hurricane Sandy.

In this special 60 Minutes Overtime feature, you'll go behind-the-scenes with Robin Hood executive director David Saltzman, who was there when the foundation's celebrity board members flew into action to organize the massive, star-studded concert in a matter of weeks.

Robin Hood raised millions and brought together some of the biggest rock and roll acts in history. But even with the help of former President Bill Clinton, the foundation couldn't reunite legendary rockers Led Zeppelin for the benefit last December. Saltzman has that story and more from the 12-12-12 concert, including the biggest moments of the show with Paul McCartney, Alicia Keys, Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen, The Rolling Stones, and more.
