(NECN/AP) – Tickets for the Boston benefit concert on May 30 sold out in minutes Monday.
Tickets for the concert at TD Garden went on sale at 10 a.m., and the TD Garden says they were gone within five minutes.

The concert will feature Aerosmith, James Taylor and Jimmy Buffett. The proceeds will go to The One Fund, which has taken in more than $28 million for those injured and the families of those who were killed.

Other confirmed acts include Jason Aldean, Boston, Extreme, Godsmack, The J. Geils Band, Carole King and New Kids on the Block. Donnie Wahlberg of New Kids on the Block said that like other native Bostonians, he and his bandmates are honored to do their part.
Comedians Dane Cook and Steven Wright also are included in the lineup.
