Some of Boston's best known acts -- and more -- are coming together in support of the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.

Boston Strong: An Evening of Support and Celebration , will take place at the TD Garden on Thursday, May 30, and will feature Aerosmith , The J. Geils Band, Boston , Extreme , James Taylor , Carole King , Jimmy Buffett , country star Jason Aldean , hard rockers Godsmack and veteran boy band New Kids on the Block , one of whose members, Joey McIntyre , actually ran in the marathon that day, and crossed the finish line just a few minutes before the bombings.  Comedians Steven Wright and Dane Cook are also on the bill.

All proceeds from Boston Strong: An Evening of Support and Celebration will go to The One Fund Boston, which was established by the governor of Massachusetts and the mayor of Boston to help those affected by the April 15 bombings.

In a statement, James Taylor said, "The One Fund event at the Garden this May 30th is destined to be a true Boston landmark...everyone involved has responded from the heart in a spontaneous and simultaneous desire to be there, and to do what we can for the city we love. I am honored to be a part of it, and...I can't wait."

Tickets range in price from $35 to $285, and go on sale Monday, May 6 via LiveNation.com and Ticketmaster.com.  For more information, visit AConcertforBoston.org .
