The Rolling Stones have been added to the list of artists performing at the Superstorm Sandy benefit concert next week in New York City.

Next Wednesday's bill had already included Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, The Who, Alicia Keys, Kanye West and others.

The sold-out show has already raised $30 million, according to the show's producers. The money will be distributed to storm victims in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut through the Robin Hood Foundation.

Producers urge fans not to buy scalped tickets because the money will not go to storm relief.

The "12-12-12" concert will be held at Madison Square Garden.
