Rock band Twisted Sister are heading home to Long Island, New York to headline a benefit concert next month (Dec12) to raise funds for the victims of superstorm Sandy.

The I Wanna Rock hitmakers will perform an intimate concert at The Emporium in Patchogue as part of a special 90-minute gig.

Bosses at the Emporium is donating $10,000 (£6,250) to help those affected by the storm which ravaged America's East Coast last month (Oct12) and hopes fans will help them reach their goal of raising $100,000 (£62,500).

In a bid to raise more money, venue executives are including special meet-and-greet packages so fans can spend time with their idols.

The band's guitarist J.J. French says, "We are excited to be able to show our love to the people of Long Island who have been impacted by this storm and bring them a rock show for the ages. This is certainly going to be a night to remember."

The Emporium owner Tim Lorito adds, "Twisted sister is a world-renowned superstar hard rock band who grew up on Long Island and proves time and time again that they have never forgotten their roots. We are thrilled to be able to partner with them to lend a hand to their fellow Long Islanders in need."

The venue will donate 100 per cent of the net proceeds from ticket and bar revenue to Sandy recovery causes and charities including Long Island Cares,Inc., The Harry Chapin Food Bank, and the Island Park Music Program, whose musical instruments were lost in the flood waters, as well as local families in need.
