Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi will be taking part in a new COVID-19 benefit show called Jersey 4 Jersey to raise funds for the New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund.

Taking place this 23rd April at 11 AM NZST, a number of celebrities including Tony Bennett, Jon Stewart, Danny DeVito, Whoopi Goldberg, Kelly Ripa, Halsey, SZA, Charlie Puth and Saquon Barkley will be joining the program that will be broadcasted in the States via Apple Music, Apple TV and SiriusXM's E Street Radio.

So far, there are no revelations if the musicians will be performing or speaking in support of the cause, which is to mitigate the medical, social and economic impact of the coronavirus in New Jersey.

"New Jersey is on the front lines of this pandemic, making it more important than ever for us to do what Jersey does best – take care of one another," New Jersey first lady Tammy Murphy stated. "That's why we're asking everyone in our state to join the NJPRF and some of New Jersey's finest for some much-needed musical entertainment, levity and Jersey Pride during these unprecedented times."

In Cleveland, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts will be performing a home concert to support the Greater Cleveland COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund to raise funds for nonprofits that are helping people who are at the greatest risk from contracting the virus. The program is titled Cleveland Rocks: From Our Living Rooms and will be broadcasted on Cleveland's Fox 8 WJW on 16th April at 11 AM NZST. The show will also include performances by Michael Stanley and Ben Folds with the Contemporary Youth Orchestra.
