Aerosmith, New Kids on the Block and Jason Aldean are just some of the many acts who will be performing at the ‘Boston Strong’ on May 30 to pay tribute to the victims of the Boston bombings.
Following the horrific events of the Boston Marathon on April 15, Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino have organized Boston Strong: An Evening of Support and Celebration, which will be held on May 30 and will benefit The One Fund Boston. Read on for all the details!
‘Boston Strong': NKOTB & More To Perform
Aerosmith, Jason Aldean, Boston, Jimmy Buffett, Dane Cook, Extreme, Godsmack, The J. Geils Band, Carole King, New Kids on the Block, James Taylor, and Steven Wright are all set to perform at Boston Strong.
“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,” said NKOTB singer Donnie Wahlberg. “Hopefully this event will not only raise money, but spirits as well.”
“The One Fund event at the Garden this May 30th is destined to be a true Boston landmark. From the promoters to the sound & lights, to the performers and the Garden staff; everyone involved has responded from the heart in a spontaneous and simultaneous desire to be there, and to do what we can for the city we love. I am honored to be a part of it, and…I can’t wait” said James Taylor.
This is truly great news, and hopefully the money raised will help rehabilitate the dozens and dozens of people who lost limbs and were injured.
Tickets will go on sale on May 6, and the concert will be held at the TD Garden in Boston.
