Jon Stewart Hosting Sold-Out Bruce Springsteen Tribute Concert

Jon Stewart will once again be lending his comedic talents to the organization behind the Grammys when hosting the 2013 MusiCares Person of the Year gala, which will honor Bruce Springsteen's artistic and philanthropic achievements. 

Stewart, a fan of The Boss, hosted the Grammys in 2001 and 2002. He will join a number of famous acts at the sold-out event taking place at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Feb. 8, two days before the awards show.

Neil Young, Kenny Chesney, Ben Harper, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Tom Morello, Mumford & Sons and many more will perform to raise money for the MusiCares Foundation -- a charity created by the Recording Academy to provide emergency financial assistance for struggling members of the music community.

Springsteen is the latest music legend to join the group's 22 previous honorees, including Tony Bennett, Bono, Neil Diamond, Aretha Franklin, Billy Joel, Elton John, Quincy Jones, Paul McCartney, Paul Simon, Sting, Barbra Streisand, James Taylor, Stevie Wonder and Neil Young. 

The "Born in the U.S.A." singer performed the 12-12-12 concert to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
