Dave Grohl, Eddie Vedder Added to 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy Relief Concert
Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl and Pearl Jam singer Eddie Vedder are among the artists added to the lineup of the 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy relief concert set to take place in New York City next month. The two alt-rockers and Bon Jovi join a star-studded bill that already includes Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, the Who and several other artists.
The 12-12-12 gig is scheduled to take place Dec. 12 at Madison Square Garden, with all proceeds going directly to the Robin Hood Relief Fund in aid of victims of Sandy, which devastated the New York and New Jersey coast in late October. Tickets go on sale to the general public at noon on Dec. 3, with Chase card holders having access to tickets at 9AM that same day. More information, including VIP packages and telecast plans, is expected to be available shortly via the concert's official website.
"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," reads a joint statement from event producers James Dolan, John Sykes and Harvey Weinstein.
