Josh Homme, best known as the frontman for Queens Of The Stone Age, is joining forces with a star-studded lineup for a special one-night charity event titled 'Josh Homme & Friends'. This concert will feature big names like Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters, Matt Helders from Arctic Monkeys, alternative music artist Beck, and many others.

Benefit Concert Supporting The Sweet Stuff Foundation

The gig is scheduled to take place on March 20 at The Belasco in downtown Los Angeles. Its main purpose is to raise funds for The Sweet Stuff Foundation, an organization founded to help musicians, recording engineers, and their families who are facing health crises and disabilities.

Apart from the headliners, the event will also see performances by punk duo The Kills, Eagles of Death Metal's Jesse Hughes, comedian Bill Burr, the innovative St. Vincent, and Red Hot Chili Peppers' drummer Chad Smith. Other acts include magician Justin Willman and comedian Sarah Silverman, ensuring a dynamic variety of entertainment for attendees.

The announcement states that tickets will become available on Friday, March 8, at 10 am local time. This event comes as a follow-up to Homme's previous participation in a similar charity concert organized for suicide prevention last year.
