The fifth annual Stand Up For Heroes event, in conjunction with The Bob Woodruff Foundation and The New York Comedy Festival. Springsteen performs three songs with The Max Weinberg Big Band, and a solo acoustic "Land Of Hope And Dreams". Mindi Abair plays saxophone on "Spirit In The Night", which also sees Bruce out in the audience. As is traditional, Bruce auctions a guitar with the assistance of Brian Williams and Seth Meyers. The hammer drops at $160,000, to include his shirt and harmonica. The winner then donated the guitar to Marine Corps First Lt. Andrew Kinard in the audience. Also on the bill are Jim Gaffigan, Ricky Gervais, and Jon Stewart; President Bill Clinton also put in a surprise appearance earlier in the night.
