Q.  I was watching the 12.12.12 concert last night and of course, Chris was phenomenal. I was wondering... when performing those types of events, what goes in to choosing the songs performed? Is it based on time allowed or relevancy to the event?
Odd question I know, but I'm a curious sort.

Both of those things and other factors are taken into account when performing at such an event.
The set list is always an important consideration regardless of the show. The suitability of the song, the audience - it's not always going to be a crowd of Coldplay fans - and the practicality of performing it solo / unplugged / with a guest.

Q.  Â¡Hola! I hope you are very well.

Dear Oracle, I was not able to watch the 12.12.12 concert :(
But I really wanted to... do you know if there is any website where I can see the concert again?

All I've been hearing is "the concert was awesome!" so I really hope there is a chance for the ones who couldn't watch it that day (:

Happy holidays!

I missed it too but was able to watch Chris' performance here.
The benefit's website gave a list of how to watch it live on the night so I am hoping they will at some point announce a repeat or other ways to watch it officially.
You can buy the album though...

Q.  Hey Oracle,
I was curious if the band's decision to add shows in NY for December had anything to do with the devastation hurricane Sandy caused? I don't know if it's just a coincidence but they released those dates shortly after the hurricane hit, and The Barclays center is 10 minutes from Rockaway Beach (my town) which was destroyed in it. Well I hope to hear back from you, thanks!

No, we actually held off announcing the shows because of the devastation going on but those dates have been on the schedule for a while now.
Tour dates may sometimes only be announced a matter of weeks before they take place but they can be on the itinerary for up to a year (or longer) in advance.
Chris has just been added to the bill for a Sandy benefit concert.
The fundraiser takes place on 12/12/12.
