Chili Peppers, Elton To Play For L.A. Clinic

Jurassic 5, Aimee Mann, Sting also on tap for concerts to benefit free care facility.

Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sting and Elton John are among the artists lined up to perform at a three-day benefit in December for a Los Angeles health care clinic.

The second annual Silver Lake Silver Lining concerts will also feature performances from Jurassic 5, Aimee Mann and hit Mexican act Jaguares.

John, Sting, Daniel Lanois, Deborah Falconer and the Nortec Collective's Bostich will take the stage for the benefit's first night on December 13 at the Paramour Estate in Los Angeles' Silver Lake area. Red Hot Chili Peppers, Aimee Mann, Jaguares, Jurassic 5 and DJ Keoki will play the same venue the following night. Performers for the third night will be announced next week, according to organizers.

Mann performed with Beck, Rufus Wainwright and others at last year's event, which raised $488,000 for the Hollywood Sunset Free Clinic (see "Beck Headlines Neighborhood Benefit For Free Clinic"). The Sunset Boulevard facility has provided free physical and mental health care for Los Angeles-area residents since 1968.

This year, actor Robert Downey, Jr. will host the first night, and actor/stuntman Johnny Knoxville, skateboarder Tony Hawk and surfer Kelly Slater will host the second.

Tickets go on sale November 3 and range between $250 and $1,000. More information is available at www.silverliningsilverlake.com.
