The concert will be presented live from Madison Square Garden and attempt to raise money to help the victims still struggling after the devastation of Hurricane Sandy.
The event has been organized by many of the same people behind the Oct. 2001 Concert for New York City that was held after the infamous Sep. 11 terrorist attacks. Clear Channel Entertainment Enterprises president John Sykes is pulling no stops to make this year's relief event the biggest it can be. The producers are calling the concert the largest gathering of musicians ever put together at Madison Square Garden, according to the New Jersey Newsroom.
The proceeds of the event presented by Chase will go to the Robin Hood Relief Fund.
Apart from the latest addition of the Rolling Stones, the all-star event will feature an array of talented performers including: The Who, Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Kanye West, Chris Martin of Coldplay, Roger Waters, Alicia Keys, Billy Joel, Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters, Eric Clapton and Bon Jovi.
The performers aren't the only big names set to appear as the list of high-profile presenters includes Susan Sarandon, Chris Rock, Kristen Stewart, Quentin Tarantino, Brian Williams, Jessica Chastain, Chelsea Clinton, Jake Gyllenhaal, Seth Meyers, Jon Stewart, Karlie Kloss and Bobby Monyihan.
The show will be broadcast on 34 U.S. television networks, a variety of radio stations and have a live stream online.
The 12-12-12 concert takes place at 7:30 p.m. EST on Dec. 12.
