Mumford and Sons, Elton John and Neil Young will perform at a tribute to Bruce Springsteen in Los Angeles next month.

The MusiCares show will take in LA on February 8, two days before this year's Grammy Awards and will also feature performances from Sting, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, John Legend and Tom Morello. Patti Smith, Jackson Browne, Alabama Shakes, Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks, Kenny Chesney and Juanes will also perform at the show. The gig is being hosted by The Daily Show comedian Jon Stewart.

The all-star show will celebrate Springsteen, who was previously named as MusiCares Person of the Year for his combination of artistic contributions and charity work.

Speaking about The Boss, MusiCares CEO Neil Portnow said: "Bruce Springsteen is a truly gifted and Renaissance artist of our time, a national treasure, and an exemplary humanitarian. His career is a testament to the power of creative excellence, and his contributions as a philanthropist speak to the tenacity of the human spirit."

Previous MusiCares Person of the Year winners include Gloria Estefan, Phil Collins, Sir Elton John, Bono and Barbra Streisand.
