Performers include Aerosmith, Jason Aldean, Boston, Jimmy Buffett, Extreme, J Geils Band, Godsmack, Carole King, New Kids On The Block, James Taylor and comedians Dane Cook and Steven Wright, along with other special guests.
Aerosmith will be returning from Singapore to participate in the special event.
“Like so many other proud Bostonians who have been extremely generous, we are honored to step up and do our part to help the victims and their families,” New Kids On The Block’s Donnie Wahlberg says at a press conference. “Hopefully this event will not only raise money, but spirits as well. Boston’s gonna fucking rock that night!”
Tickets go on sale on Monday, May 6th at 10 am ET at livenation.com, ticketmaster.com, by phone at 1-800-745-3000 or at the TD Garden Box Office. Prices range from $35 to $285 each with all proceeds benefiting The One Fund Boston, a fund set up by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino to help the people most affected by the tragic events that occurred in Boston on April 15th. All fees and services charges are included in each ticket.
