'Truly Boston Strong' At Show For Marathon Victims

This article is more than 7 years old.

As performers sang the Beatles' "Come Together," thousands of people at a benefit concert for victims of the deadly Boston Marathon bombing cheered a city that has pulled together to overcome adversity.

Veteran rockers Aerosmith helped close the 5-hour Boston Strong Concert, which also was attended by bombing victims and first responders.

Other performers included the Dropkick Murphys, Boston, boy band New Kids on the Block, country singer Jason Aldean and comedian Steven Wright.

Ticket prices for the sold-out show ranged from $35 to close to $300.

Concert proceeds will go to One Fund Boston, the compensation fund established by Gov. Deval Patrick and Mayor Thomas Menino to help Victims of the April bombing in which three people were killed and more than 260 were injured.

This program aired on May 31, 2013. The audio for this program is not available.
