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.

    Say what you will about Linkin Park's music, but you have to give them props for this. Rather than just contribute to charitable causes, they created their own charity and use their music industry connections to do a whole bundle of good for the world. That they've been recognized and awarded by the UN and have a working relationship with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is astounding. Music aside, these guys are good ****in' people.

    They are indeed a bunch of cool dudes. They've been at it for a while, too. If more people would follow their lead, the world would be a better place.

    Linkin Park, Offspring, Bad Religion, Tom Morello, and Travis Barker? It's concerts like this that make me wish I lived in L.A.

    I hope the funds raised for this event will be coursed thru the Philippine Red Cross and not to the government made up of corrupt and incompetent clowns.

    Music for Relief is non-government organisation, they helped Haiti, Japan, New Orleans and Africa already.

    I just got back from the Philippines, rebuilding people's homes and schools (Im an architect), one thing is for sure, those people need help and I don't care if I'm preaching right now. Those kids on the small islands have seen things no kid should ever see. They have had precious little and seen it ripped away from them, their homes, their friends and in many cases their family. Can you imagine seeing your family members being crushed under your own home? I spoke to children who had. Anyway sorry. There is a lot of corruption in Government, but also with big charities, I hope the money goes to people on the ground doing relief work, material suppliers, builders, local carpenters, not some big NGO or Government. Good for these bands, it cant happen fast enough, people have been stranded and homeless for a month.
