Ed to Honor The Boss on February 8th

Eddie Vedder will join Elton John, Neil Young, Mumford & Sons, Alabama Shakes, Sting, and several other artists in Los Angeles next month to honor Bruce Springsteen the musician/philanthropist.
Jon Stewart, the comedian, will host the event, which will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Feb. 8, two nights before the Grammy Awards ceremony. Mr. Springsteen is being feted as the MusiCares “Person of the Year,” an honor given to performers who stand out not only for their music but also for their philanthropy. The concert’s proceeds go to programs run by the MusiCares Foundation, a charity established in 1989 by the Recording Academy that helps musicians facing drug addiction, health problems and financial troubles.
