AXS TV is excited to broadcast the EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE of the 2013 MusiCares® gala honoring the legendary Bruce Springsteen on Sunday, March 30, at 8 ET|5 PT.
Filmed LIVE at the Los Angeles Convention Center, this once in a lifetime event – hosted by Jon Stewart – celebrates Springsteen’s career and raises funds for MusiCares Foundation® programs and services.
The concert features the industry’s biggest names performing the Boss’ biggest hits. Highlights include Alabama Shakes with a fierce rendition of “Adam Raised a Cain”; Elton John on “Streets of Philadelphia”; John Legend with a piano-driven arrangement of “Dancing in the Dark”; country favorites Tim McGraw and Faith Hill on “Tougher Than the Rest”; Mumford & Sons with “I’m On Fire”; Tom Morello and My Morning Jacket’s Jim James on “The Ghost of Tom Joad”; Patti Smith playing her Springsteen partnership “Because the Night”; Sting with “Lonesome Day”; Neil Young with the rousing “Born in the U.S.A.”; Zac Brown Band and Mavis Staples with “My City of Ruins”; and more.
The guest of honor himself, Bruce Springsteen, closes out the night with the E Street Band, summoning the crowd of 3,000 onto their feet as he blazes through catalogue classics “We Take Care of Our Own,” “Death to My Hometown,” “Thunder Road,” and “Born to Run,” before inviting the night’s performers back on stage to join in on an epic finale.
AXS TV Founder Mark Cuban said, “This event is truly inspiring—not just because we get to see these talented acts come together to honor an icon, but because it shows the music community, as a whole, coming together to aid and honor their own by helping to benefit this incredibly worthwhile organization.” Established by The Recording Academy® more than 20 years ago, the MusiCares Foundation provides aid for members of the music industry in financial, personal or medical crisis. The MusiCares Person of the Year tribute to Bruce Springsteen raised almost $6.7 million dollars for the charity!
Don’t let this event pass you by. Tune in March 30 at 8 ET|5 PT.
