Each year, the charity presents the "Big Man of The Year Award," an honor initially bestowed to Clarence Clemons in 2009, and this year will be presented to Steven Van Zandt by a very special, surprise guest. Last year's award was presented to Lady Gaga.

Tickets going on sale Oct. 2nd are for seating on the balcony and are for the show only. Table sponsorships are still available, as are elite sponsorship packages, like a front row table that includes preferred logo placement and a Fender® Telecaster autographed by Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.

The "Right to Rock Celebration" will feature live and silent auctions (opening online this week and concluding live at the October 16th event). Balcony ticketholders can bid in the auction online and at the show if they download the Bid Pal application on their smart phones.
