Concert for the Philippines, a benefit show spearheaded by Linkin Park to provide disaster relief for survivors of the devastating Nov. 8 typhoon, has announced three special guests for the event, scheduled for Sat., Jan. 11, at Club Nokia in Los Angeles. In addition to previously announced headliners Linkin Park, The Offspring, and Bad Religion, Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart, Travis Barker, and The Filharmonic have been added to the lineup, according to an announcement made today.

Best-known for their hits “Crazy on You,” “Magic Man,” and “Barracuda,” Heart was among the first and most successful rock bands to be fronted by a pair of sisters. Ann and Nancy Wilson have sold more than 35 million albums with Heart over the course of their nearly 40 year career in music.

As the drummer for Blink-182, Travis Barker is one of the most recognized and accomplished drummers in rock, punk, and hip-hop. In addition to his work with Blink-182 and Transplants, Barker has been busy with his own recording projects and collaborations, including an upcoming EP with Hopsin, and the “Psycho White” EP with Yelawolf, released in 2012.

The Filharmonic is a Los Angeles-based Filipino a cappella music group that gained widespread recognition and acclaim on the NBC show “The Sing Off.” The six-member group finished fourth on the most recent season on the show.

The three newly announced artists will make for a packed bill at Concert for the Philippines, whose proceeds will go toward Music for Relief and International Medical Corps to “provide medical treatment and medication with an emphasis on disease prevention.” Tickets for the event are extremely limited and can be acquired by fundraising or donating $250 through Crowdrise. The event has already raised over $135,000 for Philippine disaster relief.

Concert for the Philippines will be streamed live through the free AXS mobile app, available for iPhone users here and through Google Play here.
