Artists continue to show their support for victims of the Boston marathon bombing, this time in the form of a concert.

New Kids On The Block, Aerosmith, James Taylor, Dane Cook and more are set to perform for Boston Strong: An Evening of Support and Celebration on May 30 at TD Garden, a show to honor those affected by the April 15 tragedy.

Also along for the ride are the J. Geils Band, Godsmack, Extreme, Steven Wright, Jason Aldean, Jimmy Buffett, and Carole King, with ticket proceeds benefitting the One Fund Boston.

Boston proud NKOTB member Donnie Wahlberg revealed to MTV, "Like so many other proud Bostonians who have been extremely generous, we are honored to step up and do our part to help the victims and their families. Hopefully this event will not only raise money, but spirits as well."

Joey McIntyre, a fellow NKOTB member, was running the marathon and fortunately was not hurt by the bombing. The singer tweeted after the tragedy: "There was an explosion by the finish line about 5 minutes after I finished—I'm ok but I'm sure there are many hurt."

The event will no doubt raise spirits and cash as even more artists are set to join the lineup as the event nears.
