From the Google+ description:

The annual Stand Up For Heroes event, presented by the Bob Woodruff Foundation and the New York Comedy Festival, aims to help post 9/11 service members and their families thrive long after they return home. A highlight of the evening will be Roger Waters performing with a band comprised of nearly two dozen musicians and singers, all of whom are wounded active service members or veterans representing all branches of the US armed forces including the Musicorps Wounded Warrior band from Walter Reed hospital.

The Google+ Hangout during the show will feature +Sarah Hill, Veterans from across the U.S., and a few surprise guests. Join the concert and the conversation November 6, 2013 at 8:30 pm EST.

Both Springsteen and Rogers have played the event in years past and both express a true passion for helping further the Woodruff Foundation's goals.

From the Associated Press:

“I feel a great sense of empathy for the people that live on the sharp end of conflicts and the ones that actually get injured,” the 70-year-old Waters said at Monday’s rehearsal. “I get so much more out of it than I put into it.”

Watch the livestream at Google+ tonight. For more information on the event, the Bob Woodruff Foundation, or to donate, please visit their official website.
