Springsteen, Gaffigan, Jon Stewart to be among ‘Stand Up for Heroes’ performers

Springsteen Stand Up for Heroes 2021

This year’s Stand Up for Heroes benefit concert takes place Nov. 8 at Alice Tully Hall.

The Stand Up for Heroes benefit concert usually includes Bruce Springsteen among its cast, and this year’s 15th annual edition is no exception. Presented by the Bob Woodruff Foundation and the New York Comedy Festival, this year’s show will include Springsteen (who usually tells a few jokes in addition to playing a few acoustic songs), Jim Gaffigan, Jon Stewart, Nikki Glaser, Nate Bargatze, Donnell Rawlings, Grace Gaustad and Sing Harlem.

The show takes place at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center in New York, Nov. 8 at 8 p.m. Tickets range from $500 to $5,000 (with military discounts when applicable), with proceeds going to Woodruff Foundation, which provides support and resources for veterans and service members, and their families.

Last year, the benefit was presented online only because of the pandemic, and Springsteen’s performed “House of a Thousand Guitars,” “Long Walk Home” and “I’ll See You in My Dreams.”
