Music superstars Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, the Who, Jon Bon Jovi, Kanye West, Alicia Keys, Dave Grohl and Eddie Vedder are among the headliners for a Dec. 12 Hurricane Sandy benefit concert, reports Variety.

From the stage of New York's Madison Square Garden, the stars will perform to raise funds for the victims of the deadly storm that struck the East Coast in October.

HBO, AMC, Showtime and Sundance Channel are among the networks that will broadcast the show, with other networks also expected to part in airing the four-hour concert. It will also be livestreamed by Hulu, Yahoo and AOL.

Cablevision's James Dolan, Clear Channel President John Sykes and Oscar-winning producer Harvey Weinstein will produce the concert. Proceeds will benefit the Robin Hood Relief Fund, an offshoot of the Gotham-based philanthropic Robin Hood Foundation.
