| Bon Jovi, Springsteen To Play Benefit For New Jersey WTC Victims
To date, many musicians and actors have donated time and talent to raise money for the thousands of people across the New York area who were affected by the September 11 terrorist attacks against the World Trade Center. Now, Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi are reaching out to assist their own community as well.
On Thursday and Friday, the performers will be joined by Joan Jett, Joe Ely, Phoebe Snow, E Street Band members Garry Tallent and Max Weinberg, Elvis Presley guitarist Scotty Moore and others for the Alliance of Neighbors benefit concert at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, New Jersey. The concert will benefit the families of the more than 160 Monmouth County victims of the attacks, and during the first show's soundcheck, the venue will be open to the families of those who lost their lives.
The 1926 theater holds only 1,600 people, but the second concert will be televised on the Comcast network, which broadcasts to approximately 4 million homes in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Maryland. During the broadcast, the bottom of the screen will display a toll-free number viewers can call to make donations. Tickets for the Alliance of Neighbors benefit went on sale a month ago for $500, $150 and $50.
