Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ENTERTAINMENT -

NEW YORK — The Rolling Stones have been added to the list of artists per­form­ing at the Su­per­storm Sandy ben­e­fit con­cert next week in New York City.

Next Wed­nes­day’s bill had al­ready in­cluded Paul McCart­ney, Bruce Spring­steen & The E Street Band, The Who, Ali­cia Keys, Kanye West and oth­ers.

Pro­duc­ers of the show said Fri­day they had al­ready raised $30 mil­lion that will be dis­trib­uted to storm vic­tims in New York, New Jersey and Con­necti­cut through the Robin Hood Foun­da­tion. The show is sold out. Pro­duc­ers also said they had no es­ti­mate of how many tick­ets had been bought by ticket bro­kers. They urged fans not to buy scalped tick­ets be­cause the money won’t go to storm re­lief.

The con­cert is dubbed “12-12-12.” It will be held at Madi­son Square Garden.
