The City of Boston, Massachusetts was rocked when terrorists set off bombs during the Boston Marathon, and now some of our favorite stars are coming together to raise money and show support for those affected by the tragedy.

On May 30th, the TD Garden Arena will overflow with love and music as the Boston Strong: An Evening of Support and Celebration is coming to Bean Town.

As for the performers so far, folks like New Kids on the Block, Aerosmith, Jason Aldean, Boston, Jimmy Buffett, Dane Cook, Extreme, Godsmack, J. Geils Band, Carole King, Steven Wright and James Taylor will lend their voices to the philanthropic effort.

Donnie Wahlberg told press, “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. 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,” added James Taylor.
