Aerosmith, Boston, James Taylor, The J. Geils Band, Carole King, Jimmy Buffett, Godsmack and others will come together tonight, Thursday, for Boston Strong: An Evening of Support and Celebration at the TD Garden in Boston. The event will stream live on

Net ticket proceeds will benefit The One Fund Boston, set up by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino to help the people most affected by the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15th. Also on the bill are country star Jason Aldean, comics Dane Cook and Steven Wright, Extreme and New Kids on the Block.

Performing at this benefit “means everything” to Aerosmith as Steven Tyler says, “When you’re listening to songs, it builds hope and strength. We want to warm the cockles of people’s hearts.”

Bassist Tom Hamilton, who had to sit out the band’s Australian tour due to a lung infection, adds, “We will be feeling the gravity of the moment, but our job is to get up on stage and make people feel good.”

Aerosmith has a short set, but Tyler says they’ll most likely play “Livin’ on the Edge” and “Sweet Emotion.”
