Marathon show lineup: Taylor, Aerosmith, New Kids

BOSTON-MARATHON-CONCERT

BOSTON (AP) — Aerosmith, James Taylor and Jimmy Buffett are among the scheduled performers for a Boston Marathon benefit concert on May 30.

The show, at the TD Garden, will benefit One Fund — the collection of donations that will be distributed to the survivors of the April 15 bombings and the families of those killed in the attack.

Other confirmed acts include Jason Aldean, Boston, Extreme, Godsmack, The J. Geils Band, Carole King and New Kids on the Block. Donnie Wahlberg of New Kids on the Block said that like other native Bostonians, he and his bandmates are honored to do their part.

Comedians Dane Cook and Steven Wright also are included in the lineup.

Tickets range from $35 to $285. They go on sale Monday.
