Jack Black, Ministry's Al Jourgensen And Others Added To "ABOVE GROUND"
Guitarists Dave Navarro (Jane's Addiction) and Billy Morrison (Billy Idol) have confirmed the star-studded line-up for the second annual "ABOVE GROUND" benefit concert on Monday, September 16 at The Fonda Theatre in Hollywood.
As with last year's successful event, this immersive evening of art and music will celebrate the vinyl album as an art form, and at the same time raise awareness and funds for the treatment of mental health, with the profits being donated to MusiCares®, a charity of the Recording Academy™. View a trailer for the event here and read an interview with Navarro and Morrison here.
Navarro and Morrison announced the initial guests joining them for the night and have recently added the likes of Jack Black and Al Jourgensen joining the line-up that includes host and actor Tom Arnold with other guests including Joe Manganiello and musicians Billy Idol, Perry Farrell and Etty Lau Farrell (Kind Heaven Orchestra), Gavin Rossdale (Bush), Steve Stevens, Juliette Lewis, Steve Vai, Billy Duffy (The Cult), Wayne Kramer (MC5) with more to be announced.
The performers will tip their hats to two of the greatest albums of all time: David Bowie's The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars and the Stooges' self-titled debut album (celebrating its 50th anniversary this month), on which the world was introduced to Iggy Pop.
