Roger Waters is set to join John Mayer and Bruce Springsteen amongst others for a charity concert in New York in aid of Stand Up for Heroes.
The event, held at New York’s Beacon Theatre on Thursday 8th November 2012 at 8pm, is to raise money to help soldiers and their families that have been injured by war. The charity has generated
over $10m to date.
This year’s event, which is the 6th annual event, will also feature Mike Birbiglia, Ricky Gervais, Patton Oswalt, Jon Stewart, and Robin Williams. The band is made up of military veterans who Roger
and the others will be performing with. This is certainly an excellent opportunity and I am sure the veterans will have a great time being involved in such a fantastic live music event!
Bob Woodruff, co-founder of the Bob Woodruff Foundation who are putting on the event said, “We look forward to this event all year, because we are always honoured when we
get to meet the inspirational men and women who have served our country so heroically. In addition, we are amazed at the calibre of talent we are able to pull in for the benefit. These
performers simply want to help give back to the men and women who have sacrificed so much. We hope that the social media component, new this year, will enable more people to enjoy the show—and will
raise even more awareness for the cause that lies behind it.”
