McCartney and Kanye for Sandy show

Kanye West, Sir Paul McCartney and Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band will hit the stage at a Superstorm Sandy benefit concert next month at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Billy Joel, The Who, Alicia Keys and Jon Bon Jovi will also perform at the gig on December 12, which is being dubbed 12-12-12.

More performers will be announced at a later date.

Proceeds from the concert will go to the Robin Hood Relief Fund to benefit those affected by Sandy in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

Sandy's assault more than two weeks ago created widespread damage and power cuts throughout the area.

Many stars have been doing their bit to help the victims.

Gwyneth Paltrow is auctioning off a dinner date to raise money, while Harry Potter star Emma Watson has helped to deliver meals to those in need.

Lady Gaga donated a million dollars to the Red Cross and newlyweds Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have been handing out relief backpacks and blankets.
