Elton John will headline “The Concert — 20 Years of AIDS,” an all-star benefit show for AIDS Project Los Angeles and the singer’s own AIDS foundation.
The event, scheduled for December 12 at the Universal Amphitheatre, will feature performances by Sting, Bon Jovi, Matchbox Twenty, Alicia Keys, Craig David, LeAnn Rimes, Pete Yorn and Rufus Wainwright, according to John’s spokesperson. Other acts may be added.
John has hosted a benefit concert for the Elton John AIDS Foundation during Grammy week for several years (see “Sting, Mary J., Moby, Sheryl Crow Show Love For Elton” ), but this is his first time organizing a concert with AIDS Project Los Angeles.
Song From the West Coast, John’s latest album, debuted earlier this month at #15 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
