Former Pink Floyd singer/bassist Roger Waters will return to perform at the seventh annual edition of the Stand Up for Heroes event , which supports the Bob Woodruff Foundation's efforts to help wounded service members, veterans and their families.  This year's show will take place November 6 at The Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

The Stand Up for Heroes benefit offers an evening of music and comedy, and is part of the annual New York Comedy Festival.  In addition to Waters, Bruce Springsteen will perform at the bash, along with comedic sets by Jerry Seinfeld and Jon Stewart , as well as some surprise guests.

Waters made his debut appearance at the Stand Up for Heroes event in 2012. He was was joined by a group of musicians that featured injured military personnel from the MusiCorps program that's based at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

The Stand Up for Heroes concert has so far raised more than $16 million for the Bob Woodruff Foundation.  Tickets for the event are on sale now at BobWoodruffFoundation.org and NYComedyFestival.com .
