The Voice of America reports that “a major concert in Washington, D.C. is among the many events planned across the United States Tuesday during the annual Veterans Day holiday.”  

“As many as 800,000 people are expected to gather on the National Mall in front of the U.S. Capitol for the ‘Concert for Valor’ event, featuring such acts as rock-and-roll legend Bruce Springsteen, rhythm-and-blues singer Rihanna, country star Carrie Underwood and heavy metal band Metallica.”  

“Organizers are hoping to use the concert to raise awareness for organizations aimed at helping military veterans once they leave active service.”
