Kanye West, Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band and the Who are just some of the acts confirmed for the star-studded 12-12-12 concert, a benefit to aid those recovering from the destruction of Hurricane Sandy.

Jon Bon Jovi, Billy Joel, Alicia Keys and Roger Waters will also perform at the concert, set for — you guessed it — December 12 at New York's iconic Madison Square Garden.

Proceeds from the 12-12-12 concert will go to the Robin Hood Relief Fund, which works hand-in-hand with the local organizations serving those in the tri-state area that were hit hardest by Sandy. The concert is organized by Clear Channel, the Madison Square Garden Company and the Weinstein Company, the same group that sponsored the historic 9/11 benefit "The Concert for New York City."

More information — including how to buy tickets for the concert and broadcast information — will be released in the coming days.
