Dave Grohl, Eddie Vedder and Bon Jovi have been added to the all-star bill for the “12-12-12” Hurricane Sandy benefit happening December 12th at Madison Square Garden to raise money for the Robin Hood Relief Fund.
Jon Bon Jovi was already set to appear, though now he’ll do so alongside his Bon Jovi bandmates. Also booked are Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Kanye West, Billy Joel, the Who, Alicia Keys and Roger Waters.
There’s even talk of the Rolling Stones stopping by, event organizers told Rolling Stone last week. “The challenge is they have a full-blown dress rehearsal on the 12th or the 13th because their Pay Per View special is on the 15th,” said John Sykes, president of Clear Channel Entertainment, who’s spearheading the concert with Harvey Weinstein of the Weinstein Company and Madison Square Garden head James Dolan. “But, yeah, there have been conversations with them. Mick and Keith came out for the Concert for New York City 11 years ago and played on their own. They’re well aware of the show and certainly have been invited to be part of it in any way, shape or form of the band.”
Tickets for “12-12-12” will go on sale on December 3rd at noon, while information regarding the benefit’s telecast and online livestream will be available soon.
