Star-packed concert planned for Boston Marathon bombing victims

BOSTON —Some of the biggest names in music will perform at an official benefit concert that would support One Fund Boston and victims of the marathon bombings.


Aerosmith, The New Kids on the Block, James Taylor, Carole King, Jimmy Buffet, Boston, Dane Cook, Extreme, J.Geils Band and Godsmack, are signed on to perform at the TD Garden on May 30 at 7 p.m.

"I am very rarely speechless, but today I find myself searching for words," said Donnie Wahlberg, of New Kids on the Block. "I am a Bostonian, and this has affected all of us to the core."

Wahlberg said he hopes the concert, Boston Strong: An evening of support and celebration, "raises a ton of money and the spirits of those in the city."

Concert organizers said more artists are expected to join the lineup.
