Aerosmith, James Taylor, and Jimmy Buffett are among several artists coming together for a benefit concert for victims of the Boston Marathon bombings, according to the Associated Press.

Tickets for the show scheduled Thursday at the TD Garden sold out in minutes after they went on sale May 6. Proceeds will benefit One Fund Boston, the compensation fund established by Gov. Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino to help those injured in the April 15 bombings and the families of three people killed.
