Slash, Scorpions, Others Scheduled For "Michael Jackson & Friends"



Slash, the Scorpions, Boys II Men, Luther Vandross, Andrea Bocelli, and Luciano Pavarotti are among an extremely mixed bag of artists confirmed for the "Michael Jackson & Friends" benefit concert in Munich, Germany on June 27.

Digg del.icio.us StumbleUpon Furl Newsvine will be performing as well, along with other confirmed acts such as Status Quo and Zucchero.

The original plan had called for two different venues in the same city: one staging a classical concert, the other holding a rock show. But now the promoters have combined the two events into one, making for some strange stagefellows indeed.

The Munich show is one of three major charity appearances for Jackson in June. The singer is mounting a similar concert in Seoul, Korea on June 25, two days prior to the Munich show. The Seoul show will feature several of the same artists found on the Munich roster, including Slash.

Jackson had attempted to stage a similar concert in Korea last October, but the event was canceled (see: "Michael Jackson To Start Global Children's Charity, Schedules Korean Benefit Concert").

The shows are tagged "Michael Jackson & Friends: The Adventure of Humanity." The proceeds benefit the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund, the Red Cross, and UNESCO.

Other artists either previously reported or rumored to be appearing at one of the "Friends" concerts (and, in some cases, both) include Gloria Estefan, Diana Ross, Ringo Starr, and Stevie Wonder, and Elizabeth Taylor. A Rod Stewart performance is expected to be beamed in via satellite.

Jackson is also appearing at the "Pavarotti & Friends" benefit concert for Warchild on June 1 in Modena, Italy (see: "Ricky Martin, Mariah Carey, Michael Jackson, Others To Join Pavarotti For Benefit").
