Springsteen, Kanye, McCartney & The Who Lead Hurricane Sandy Benefit Concert

A star-studded event will raise funds for the Robin Hood Relief Fund to aid those affected in the tri-state area.

A benefit for victims of Hurricane Sandy will take place on December 12 at New York's Madison Square Garden, and the lineup for 12-12-12: The Concert For Sandy Relief is incredible: Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Kanye West, Paul McCartney, Roger Waters, The Who, Alicia Keys, Bill Joel, Jon Bon Jovi, and more will all perform at a concert benefiting victims of Hurricane Sandy.

This special one night only live music event will help provide assistance to the millions of people throughout the tri-state area who have been affected by Hurricane Sandy. Proceeds from the concert will benefit the Robin Hood Relief Fund, which is providing money, material and know-how to local organizations that are serving families and individuals in the regions hardest hit by the storm. The concert will also be televised by an outlet which is yet to be announced.

Additional artists and ticket information will be announced in the coming days. 12-12-12: The Concert For Sandy Relief is being organized by Clear Channel Media and iHeartRadio in conjunction with The Weinstein Company and The Madison Square Garden Company.

Just one question, though: with a lineup as incredible as this, why in the blue hell is Bon Jovi in the headlining slot?
