Don Law, President of Live Nation New England commented about the concert shortly after it’s announcement this morning:
“Live Nation and TD Garden have hosted thousands of concerts over the years, but none with such a sense of purpose as ‘Boston Strong’. Boston is a city with strong roots, and homegrown artists reached out to us to see what could be done. We are proud to help solidify this huge concert line-up.”
Performers chimed in with their excitement to be part of the show, James Taylor gushing:
“The One Fund event at the Garden this May 30th is destined to be a true Boston landmark. From the promoters to the sound & lights, to the performers and the Garden staff; everyone involved has responded from the heart in a spontaneous and simultaneous desire to be there, and to do what we can for the city we love. I am honored to be a part of it, and … I can’t wait.”
Donnie Wahlberg of New Kids on the Block added:
“Like so many other proud Bostonians who have been extremely generous, we are honored to step up and do our part to help the victims and their families. Hopefully this event will not only raise money, but spirits as well.”
