Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band and Kanye West will perform at New York's Madison Square Garden next month at a benefit concert for victims of superstorm Sandy.

MSG announced Thursday that Billy Joel, The Who, Alicia Keys and Jon Bon Jovi will also perform at the Dec. 12 show, dubbed "12-12-12." More performers will be announced at a later date.

Proceeds from the concert will go to the Robin Hood Relief Fund to benefit those affected by Sandy in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Sandy's assault more than two weeks ago created widespread damage and power outages throughout the area.

Ticket information will be announced in the coming days, according to the concert's website.

The event is being produced by Clear Channel Media and Entertainment, The Madison Square Garden Company and The Weinstein Company - the same group behind the 9/11 benefit "The Concert for New York City," which featured McCartney, Jay-Z, The Who and Elton John.
