AXS TV is proud to present the exclusive premiere of the 2013 MusiCares gala, feting Bruce Springsteen, on Sunday, March 30, at 8 p.m. ET.

 

Filmed live at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Friday, February 8, 2013, the once in a lifetime event—hosted by The Daily Show‘s Jon Stewart—celebrates Springsteen’s career, whilst raising funds and awareness for the invaluable programs and services that the MusiCares Foundation provides to music people in need.

Highlights from the concert range from Elton on Streets of Philadelphia to Patti Smith playing her Springsteen partnership Because the Night.

Established by the Recording Academymore than two decades ago, the MusiCares Foundation provides aid for members of the music industry in financial, personal, or medical crisis, with a focus on human service issues. The MusiCares Person of the Year tribute to Bruce raised almost $6.7 million dollars for the charity, through table, ticket and tribute journal ad sales, outside contributions, and silent and live auctions.

MusiCares 2013 is a perfect fit for our programming, as AXS TV strives to deliver the best, and most unique, concert experiences to our audience,” said AXS TV founder Mark Cuban. “This event is truly inspiring—not just because we get to see these talented acts come together to honour 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 organisation.”
