Neil Young, Mumford & Sons to honour Bruce Springsteen at MusiCares benefit

Neil Young and Mumford & Sons will be two of the headline acts when Bruce Springsteen becomes the latest MusiCares’ Person Of The Year next month.

The Boss is being recognised by the MusiCares organisation due to his humanitarian work, and is also due to be treated to a headline performance from Elton John when the ceremony takes place as part of the build-up to this year’s Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on February 8th.

Since being initiated in 1991 when David Crosby received the honour, the likes of Paul Simon, Stevie Wonder, Bono, Sting and Paul McCartney have all been handed the title, with proceeds from each event going towards those within the music industry who are in need of medical treatment, financial aid or personal assistance.

Jon Stewart, a fellow New Jersey native and host of The Daily Show, will host the concert. Sting, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, John Legend, Tom Morello, Patti Smith, Jackson Browne, Alabama Shakes, Natalie Maines, Kenny Chesney and Juanes have made plans to attend and perform at the charity evening, completing a suitably impressive bill.
