NEW YORK, Nov. 15 (UPI) -- Jon Bon Jovi, Billy Joel, Alicia Keys, Kanye West and Bruce Springsteen are to perform at the 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy benefit concert in New York.

Paul McCartney, Roger Waters and The Who will also be part of the lineup, Clear Channel Media and Entertainment, The Madison Square Garden Co. and The Weinstein Co. announced Thursday.

The star-studded event is to take place Dec. 12 at Madison Square Garden.

"'12-12-12' is shaping up to be a showcase of music royalty. 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," event producers James Dolan, John Sykes and Harvey Weinstein said in a joint statement.
