NEW YORK — The Rolling Stones will join the artists already booked for next week’s televised Superstorm Sandy benefit show in New York City, which producers said Friday would be the most widely available live concert ever.

The Stones join a trio of 1960s British rock royalty on the bill, including Paul McCartney and the Who. Among the other artists scheduled to appear are Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Alicia Keys, Kanye West, Eric Clapton, Eddie Vedder, Billy Joel, Roger Waters and Chris Martin.

The “12-12-12” concert at Madison Square Garden will be available on television or online to some 2 billion people, said James Dolan, one of the producers. A total of 34 U.S. television networks have agreed to show the concert, which begins at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.
