Bruce Springsteen, Jon Stewart among headliners for Stand Up for Heroes: Here's how to get tickets


If you couldn't snag tickets to Springsteen on Broadway, the Bob Woodruff Foundation is about to become your new favorite charity.

The Boss himself will join an A-list crew of musical artist and comedians for the 12th annual Stand Up for Heroes event on Nov. 5 at Madison Square Garden's Hulu Theater. Jon Stewart, Seth Meyers, Eric Church, Jim Gaffigan and Jimmy Carr will round out the lineup.

Tickets go on sale Sept. 13 at 12 PM EST -- you can buy them on Ticketmaster right here.

The evening, which kicks off this year's New York Comedy Festival, will honor the United States' post-9/11 impacted veterans and their families. All proceeds will support the Bob Woodruff Foundation, which was founded in 2006 after the ABC News correspondent was gravely injured by a roadside bomb in Iraq.

“As [wife] Lee and I began our own journey of recovery from my injuries, we were inspired and committed to do something in return for those who risk so much and ask for so little,” Woodruff said in a statement. “Stand Up for Heroes was our way to come together with our veterans and their families so that we could laugh, heal and share in the incredible stories that have defined this movement.”

Springsteen, Stewart and Meyers have all performed at Stand Up for Heroes in past years. Past performers have included John Mayer, Jerry Seinfeld, Stephen Colbert, Conan O'Brien and Robin Williams.

The New York Comedy Festival was founded by Caroline Hirsch, who worked with Andrew Fox to spearhead Stand Up for Heroes with the Bob Woodruff Foundation
