More artists are expected to be added to the line-up in the coming days.
Don Law, President of Live Nation New England announced the concert 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’,” he said in a press release timed with the announcement. “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.”
Tickets will go on sale May 6 via Ticketmaster and Live Nation, with prices ranging from $35 to $285.
