2013 Stand Up for Heroes Benefit Featuring Bruce Springsteen and Roger Waters to Be Streamed Online

Danny Clinch; Courtesy of Roger WatersIf you can't make it out to see Bruce Springsteen and Roger Waters perform this Wednesday at the 2013 edition of the annual Stand Up for Heroes benefit in New York City, you'll still be able to catch all the action online.  The fundraiser, which supports the Bob Woodruff Foundation's efforts to help wounded service members, veterans and their families, will be streaming live on the organization's official YouTube channel and at Google.com/+Stand4Heroes.

The Stand Up for Heroes benefit, which will be held at The Theater at Madison Square Garden, is part of the annual New York Comedy Festival and will feature stand-up by Bill Cosby, Jerry Seinfeld, Jon Stewart and Jim Gaffigan in addition to musical performances by Springsteen and Waters.  A number of surprise guest stars also will take part in the festivities.

The Boss has participated in every previous Stand Up for Heroes installment, while Waters made his debut appearance last year.  As he did in 2012, the founding Pink Floyd singer/bassist will perform with a band made up of wounded active military personnel and veterans.

The aforementioned Google event, dubbed a Google+ Hangout, will offer an interactive element that will allow the participating celebrities and military members to chat with fans online about the benefit and the issues affecting wounded armed forces personnel.

Tickets for the seventh annual Stand Up for Heroes show can be purchased at BobWoodruffFoundation.org and NYComedyFestival.com.
