Bruce Springsteen To Hit 12-12-12 Sandy Relief Concert

Bruce Springsteen has signed on to appear at an all-star benefit concert for those struck hardest by Superstorm Sandy. The event will take place on December 12 at New York's Madison Square Garden and will also feature a performance by Paul McCartney.

The concert has been dubbed the 12-12-12 event and organizers James Dolan, John Sykes and Harvey Weinstein say it will 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," the organizers note in a statement.

Jon Bon Jovi, Billy Joel, Roger Waters and Alicia Keys are also expected to perform.
