NEW YORK, Nov. 27 (UPI) -- Dave Grohl and Eddie Vedder have joined the lineup for next month's Hurricane Sandy fundraiser at New York's Madison Square Garden, organizers said.

The addition of the artists to the "12-12-12" show bill was announced Tuesday by Clear Channel Media and Entertainment, The Madison Square Garden Co. and The Weinstein Co.

Proceeds from the Dec. 12 event are to benefit the Robin Hood Relief Fund.

Also set to perform that night are Bon Jovi, Billy Joel, Alicia Keys, Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, Roger Waters, Kanye West and The Who.

"We are extremely grateful that the incomparable list of musicians appearing at '12-12-12' continues to grow, as more and more inimitable performers sign on to ensure the event has the greatest possible impact on relief efforts relating to

Hurricane Sandy," event producers James Dolan, John Sykes and Harvey Weinstein said in a joint statement Tuesday.
