The show is set for December 12th at New York City’s Madison Square Garden, and will also feature performances from Jon Bon Jovi, Billy Joel, Roger Waters and Alicia Keys, with more artists to be announced.
The concert will be “a showcase of music royalty,” James Dolan, John Sykes and Harvey Weinstein said in a statement. “The response from the entertainment community to help those most affected by Hurricane Sandy has been nothing short of astounding. We expect to announce additional legendary performers in the near future and we are confident that the event will ensure those in need will not be forgotten, and vital aid will be directed to rebuilding our communities along the East Coast.”
Information regarding tickets and VIP packages, as well as details on a telecast of the event, will be released in the coming days via the “12-12-12” concert website.
