Aerosmith, James Taylor to headline "Boston Strong" concert

An all-star concert benefiting victims of the Boston Marathon bombings was announced on Friday.

The show, called "Boston Strong: A Night of Support and Celebration," is set to take place on May 30 at the TD Garden, and will feature performances by Aerosmith, Jason Aldean, Boston, Jimmy Buffett, Extreme, J Geils Band, Godsmack, Carole King, New Kids On The Block, James Taylor and comedians Dane Cook and Steven Wright, along with other special guests.

Aerosmith is returning from Singapore to participate in the concert.

"Boston's gonna (expletive) rock that night!" NKOTB's Donnie Wahlberg said during the news conference announcing the show.

Tickets will go on sale Monday, May 6 at 10 a.m. ET, and all proceeds will go to The One Fund Boston. There was no immediate word on ticket prices, but the tickets are all going to be paperless in an effort to cut down on scalping.
