Roger Waters - Stand Up for Heroes 2012 (copyright Bob Woodruff Foundation)Last November 8th, as a late addition to the bill, Roger Waters performed with a band comprised of military veterans at the 6th annual Bob Woodruff Foundation Stand Up for Heroes event at the Beacon Theatre in New York.

The bill for this year's event has just been announced, and amongst the artists confirmed for the 7th annual evening of comedy and music are the likes of Jerry Seinfeld, Bruce Springsteen and Roger Waters, who is making his return to New York for the show. This time, it is being held at the Theater at Madison Square Garden, on November 6th, 2013. Tickets for the event, which start at $250 and run up to (an eye-watering) $5000, are now on sale through this official link. The show starts at 8pm.

Since its inception, the event has raised more than $16 million to support wounded warriors and their families. It brings together leaders from military, business, entertainment, government, and philanthropy to raise funds to help post-911 injured service members and their families thrive long after they return to the home front.

Stand Up for Heroes marks the sacrifice of returning service members, veterans and their families by offering support in the effort to heal the physical and psychological wounds of war.

Last year's event was webcast, and you can still view it on demand through Youtube:
