Linkin Park, the Offspring, Heart and other special guests have been confirmed to perform at Concert for the Philippines on Jan. 11, 2014. The show will take place at Los Angeles' Club Nokia.
Set up by Linkin Park's Music for Relief charitable organization, the Concert for the Philippines will raise money for the 12 million people who were impacted by Typhoon Haiyan. In November, Typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines and other portions of Southeast Asia, causing thousands of deaths, massive flooding, landslides and widespread destruction.
The bands will be supported by punk rock icons Bad Religion alongside with the Fihlarmonic, Blink 182 sticksman Travis Barker and the famous guitarist Tom Morello. Check out the video showing Heart's Nancy Wilson rehearsing Linkin Park's "Castle of Glass" with the band.
Concert for the Philippines is limited to just 500 tickets, and those tickets will become available for those who donate or raise a minimum of $250 for typhoon relief. The first 300 people who reach Music for Relief's $250 goal will be guaranteed general admission pit tickets closest to the stage. Additionally, the top 75 fundraisers overall will be rewarded with perks such as meet + greets with the bands, VIP reserved seating, access to a VIP pre-party, parking, commemorative merch + more.
For those outside the L.A. Area, special VIP ticket packages will be awarded to two lucky fans who have donated a minimum of $10 to Music for Relief. The packages include airfare and hotel costs, so for more information, visit the official Music for Relief website.
