The Benefits Don't Stop
Tomorrow night, Avalon Hollywood in conjunction with Will.I.Am of the Black Eyed Peas is hosting a Tsunami Benefit. All of the proceeds of the show, which features Justin Timberlake, James Brown, Carlos Santana, John Legend, Macy Gray, Herbie Hancock, Earth, Wind & Fire and more, are going towards UNICEF's Tsunami Relief efforts. We're not quite sure of all the details yet but we will update this as soon as we do.
A week from tomorrow you can support the relief efforts again as Jay-Z & Linkin Park, No Doubt, Ozzy Osbourne, Blink-182 and others take over the Arrowhead Pond in Anaheim. The show was put together by Linkin Park and tickets are $85 to $125. They go on sale tomorrow (although if you are part of the fan clubs of most of the bands on the set list you can pre-buy on many of their sites right now). All of the proceeds from the show are going to Music for Relief which hopes to raise $1 million dollars from the event.
