NEW YORK -

Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band and Kanye West will hit the stage at a Superstorm Sandy benefit concert next month at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

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: The Concert for Sandy Relief.'' 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.

NBC hosted a star-studded benefit concert for Hurricane Sandy victims Nov. 4 that raised $23 million for the Red Cross relief efforts.

That concert featured New Jersey natives Jon Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen, plus Jimmy Fallon, Tina Fey, Steven Tyler, Mary J. Blige, Jon Stewart, Whoopi Goldberg, Danny DiVito, Brian Williams and host Matt Lauer.
