The music world's immediate response to the 9/11 attacks came in the form of the America (A Tribute To Heroes) benefit concert and telethon, which aired on 21 September 2011. Paul Simon, U2, Bon Jovi & Alicia Keys were among the artists who performed, while Bruce Springsteen's rendition of 'My City of Ruins' became an anthem for post-9/11 America, as did many tracks on his album 'The Rising'.
