By DAVID BAUDER , AP Entertainment Writer

NEW YORK (AP) -- 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 already includes 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.

Why aren't the Democrats screaming over FEMA'S poor showing in this disaster?  Remember Obama was going to make changes to FEMA?  Looks like things got worse instead of better.  If W. was President, the Dems would be on all the t.v. news shows demanding answers but Obama is getting a free pass - again!

Is this only for New Yorkers or for other areas on the East Coast as well? People in Crisfield MD are not getting any help from FEMA and they need as much as they can get!
