The staggeringly incredible lineup for 12-12-12 (A Concert for Sandy Relief) just got better. Bon Jovi, Dave Grohl and Eddie Vedder will join Billy Joel, Alicia Keys, Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, Roger Waters, Kanye West and The Who as performers at Madison Square Garden on December 12 to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Sandy. (Jon Bon Jovi had previously signed on for the relief concert as a solo performer, but now the entire band of Jersey boys will rock 12-12-12!)
Proceeds from the concert—organized by The Madison Square Garden Company, Clear Channel Media and Entertainment and The Weinstein Company—will go to the Robin Hood Relief Fund. Since Sandy hit, the Robin Hood Relief Fund has been providing money, material and know-how to local organizations serving those suffering in the wake of the storm's devastation. Chase Bank has also signed on as a presenting sponsor of 12-12-12.
With Bon Jovi, Grohl and Vedder joining the existing roster at MSG, 12-12-12 should be a remarkable night. Tickets will go on sale Monday, December 3 at noon ET through Ticketmaster phones, outlets and www.ticketmaster.com, www.thegarden.com and www.radiocity.com.
