The 2013 MusiCares Person of the Year concert film honoring Bruce Springsteen will air on AXS TV Sunday, March 30 at 8 PM ET, and a preview of the broadcast is available.

Hosted by Jon Stewart, the tribute recognizes Springsteen's extraordinary creative accomplishments as well as his significant charitable work, and features Bruce and the E Street Band in addition to more than a dozen performances of Springsteen's work by other artists.

Viewers will see Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Elton John, Sting, Patti Smith, John Legend, Kenny Chesney and more deliver unique versions of Springsteen classics before the honoree hits the stage with the E Street Band to close the show.

Established in 1989, MusiCares provides a place for musicians to turn to in times of financial, personal, or medical crisis; the foundation's programs include emergency financial assistance, addiction recovery, outreach and leadership activities, and senior housing.
