The list of performers donating their time and effort to the 12-12-12 benefit concert for Hurricane Sandy keeps getting bigger.

The high-profile event, organized by Clear Channel and set for Dec. 12 at Madison Square Garden, already boasted the likes of Paul McCartney and Kanye West. Now they’ve officially confirmed the addition of Eddie Vedder, Dave Grohl, and the full Bon Jovi roster. (Jon Bon Jovi himself had already been slated, but now the New Jersey native will have his band with him.)

The rest of the bill is heavy with some of the tri-state area’s favorite sons and daughters, like Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Alicia Keys, and Billy Joel. They’ll all be joined by stars like the Who, Roger Waters, McCartney, and West — all in all, a lineup that should guarantee a little something for everyone.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the victims of Hurricane Sandy via the Robin Hood Relief Fund; tickets go on sale next Monday, Dec. 3, at noon.
