Aerosmith - Aerosmith, NKTOB And A Host Of Other Acts Team Up For Boston Benefit

Don Law, President of Live Nation New England has announced that the concert promoters will be hosting a charity gig for the victims of the Boston bombing and the lineup for the benefit is already growing fast. With less than a month left until the show on May 30th, acts like Aerosmith, New Kids On The Block, Jason Aldean, James Taylor and Jimmy Buffet have all signed on to perform at the charity event. The funds raised from the concert will go to the One Fund, benefiting the survivors and the families of those who died in the explosions on April 15.

Other confirmed acts include Jason Aldean, Boston, Extreme, Godsmack, The J. Geils Band, Carole King and New Kids on the Block. Boston native Donnie Wahlberg, of New Kids On The Block fame, commented that as a Boston Native, he was proud to do his part for the city’s recovery from the tragedy. Additional performers might be announced in the coming weeks, but the lineup for the benefit is looking pretty impressive as is. The benefit will also feature some non-musical bits, courtesy of comedians like Dane Cook and Steven Wright. The event will be held at Boston’s TD Garden and tickets will go on sale this coming Monday (May 6), ranging from $35 to $285.
