As part of the build up to music’s big night, aka The Grammys, Bruce Springstreen is set to be honoured at the 2013 MusiCares Person of the Year this year. In the press release, the special event will honour Springsteen for his “exceptional artistic achievements as well as his philanthropic work”. The money raised from the event will go into the MusiCares Foundation for people in music who run into trouble, financially, medically or personally.
The event, in its 23rd year, is completely sold out. It’s set to take place on the 8th of February at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Jon Stewart will host the event and Alabama Shakes, Jackson Browne, Kenny Chesney, Ben Harper, Emmylou Harris, Faith Hill, Jim James, Elton John, Juanes, John Legend, Natalie Maines, Tim McGraw, Tom Morello, Mumford & Sons, Patti Smith, Mavis Staples, Sting, Eddie Vedder, and Neil Young will all be in attendance. They are also set to perform. Feeling the FOMO already!!
