Roger Waters and John Mayer have joined the line-up for the 6th annual Stand Up For Heroes event at New York's Beacon Theatre next week.
Stand Up For Heroes raises money for wounded soldiers and their families and to date has generated over $10 million.
The Bob Woodruff Foundation and the New York Comedy Festival put this event on every year.
This year's event will also feature Mike Birbiglia, Ricky Gervais, Patton Oswalt, Jon Stewart, Bruce Springsteen and Robin Williams. The band is made up of military veterans.
'We look forward to this event all year, because we are always honored when we get to meet the inspirational men and women who have served our country so heroically,' said Bob Woodruff, co-founder, the Bob Woodruff Foundation. 'In addition, we are amazed at the caliber of talent we are able to pull in for the benefit. These performers simply want to help give back to the men and women who have sacrificed so much. We hope that the social media component, new this year, will enable more people to enjoy the show-and will raise even more awareness for the cause that lies behind it.'
Musical performances will be streamed live on YouTube and available worldwide on Remind.org
The 6th annual Stand Up For Heroes event is on next Thursday, November 6 at the Beacon Theatre, Manhattan.
