MUSICARES TRIBUTE IN HONOR OF BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN
Bruce Springsteen will be honored as the 2013 MusiCares Person of the Year at a special event on February 8 at Los Angeles Convention Center, celebrating his
exceptional artistic achievements as well as his philanthropic work. Proceeds from the annual Person of the Year tribute — now in its 23rd year — provide essential support for MusiCares, which ensures that music people have a place to turn in times of financial, medical, and personal need.
The evening will feature performances by Alabama Shakes, Jackson Browne, Kenny Chesney, Ben Harper, Emmylou Harris,
Faith Hill, Jim James, Elton John, Juanes, John Legend, Natalie Maines, Tim McGraw, Tom Morello, Mumford & Sons, Patti Smith, Mavis Staples, Sting, Eddie Vedder, and Neil Young. Jon Stewart will be the evening's host.
MusiCares Person of the Year tribute is one of the most prestigious events held during Grammy Week. The
celebration culminates with the 55th Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday, Feb. 10 at Staples Center in Los Angeles. The telecast will be broadcast live on the CBS Television Network at 8 p.m. ET/PT. This MusiCares gala event is completely sold out.
