Dave Grohl, Eddie Vedder Added To Sandy Relief Concert

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl and Pearl Jam singer Eddie Vedder have been added to the lineup of 12-12-12: The Concert For Sandy Relief.

The show, scheduled for December 12th at New York's Madison Square Garden, already boasts a bill packed with stars, including Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Kanye West, Paul McCartney, Roger Waters, The Who, Alicia Keys, Billy Joel, and Jon Bon Jovi. More acts are expected to be announced shortly.

Tickets for the event go on sale this Monday (December 3rd) at 12:00 noon ET via Ticketmaster.

Of course, all proceeds will go to the Robin Hood Relief Fund to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy, which pummeled the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area last month.

Pearl Jam has been mostly off the road this year, although Vedder has done some solo shows. The band is slowly putting together its 10th studio album.

Grohl's Foo Fighters are on hiatus following the end of the touring cycle for 2011's Wasting Light album. Grohl has laid down the drum tracks for the next record from Queens Of The Stone Age and is also completing Sound City, a documentary he directed about the legendary Los Angeles recording studio.
