The Alliance of Neighbors benefit concert featuring Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi, Phoebe Snow, and Joan Jett will be broadcast live Friday (Oct. 19) via Philadelphia-based cable television provider Comcast's CN8-The Comcast Network channel. The event will be the second of two sold-out shows at the 1,400-capacity Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, N.J., to benefit area victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

J. Fontana, and Jerry Sheff.

CN8 -- which reaches 4 million households in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, and Maryland -- will begin coverage at 8 p.m. and carry the event through its expected midnight completion, "although it could go well beyond," according to a CN8 spokesperson.
