NEW YORK (AP) — Two New Jersey icons — Bruce Springsteen and Jon Stewart — will once again headline this year's Stand Up for Heroes fundraiser, which benefits injured veterans and their families.

The comedy and musical event will also feature John Oliver, Hasan Minhaj and Ronny Chieng. It will be held Nov. 4 at the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Tickets go on sale Tuesday at noon Eastern.

Stand Up for Heroes was first held in 2007 and is produced by the New York Comedy Festival and the Bob Woodruff Foundation. Woodruff was nearly killed during a 2006 attack in Iraq while embedded with U.S. troops for ABC News.
