The Transformers star, who is married to B.E.P. frontwoman Fergie, enlisted the help of the band on behalf of the Minot Area Recovery Fund, for which he is the honorary chairman.

The concert at the State Fairgrounds, entitled “Minot Rising,” was sold out, drawing 16,000 fans.

Minot is currently recovering from a flood that displaced nearly 11,000 residents and damaged nearly 4,100 houses in June, including Duhamel's childhood home.
