Bruce Springsteen’s Musicares Foundation gala looks set to be a star-studded affair as Elton John, Neil Young and Sting are among the acts who have signed up to pay tribute to The Boss.
The “Born to Run” hitmaker has been named the charitable organization’s Person of the Year in recognition of his glittering career and tireless charity work, and he will be the guest of honor at the annual event in Los Angeles next month.
Mumford & Sons, John Legend, Tom Morello, Patti Smith, Alabama Shakes and married singers Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are also on the bill for the concert at the L.A. Convention Centre.
The show will be hosted by Jon Stewart. MusiCares provides help and support for musicians in times of financial or medical need.
