Beyoncé and JAY-Z are set to headline a hurricane benefit concert in New York.

US Weekly confirmed the news that Bey and Jay are sharing the stage for a benefit concert for Hurricane Irma and Harvey victims. Roc Nation artists will also perform at the benefit.

Beyoncé has supported relief efforts for Harvey victims over the past few weeks through her Bey Good foundation as well as during Bun B’s Hand in Hand telethon on Sept. 12, where she gave a rousing, emotional speech.

“During a time where it’s impossible to watch the news without seeing violence or racism in this country, just when you think it couldn’t possibly get worse, natural disasters take precious life, do massive damage and forever change lives, leaving behind contaminated water, flooded hospitals, schools and nursing homes,” said during the telethon, which earned an estimated $55 million. “Natural disasters don’t discriminate. They don’t see if you’re an immigrant, black or white, Hispanic or Asian, Jewish or Muslim, wealthy or poor. It doesn’t matter if you’re from [Houston neighborhoods] Third Ward or River Oaks, we’re all in this together.”

The show will be held at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, on Tuesday, October 17.
