Corey Taylor (Slipknot), Scott Ian (Anthrax), Dave Navarro, and other rockers, are set to play a charity concert for Africa later this month. Former Black Flag frontman Henry Rollins recruited the all-star lineup to help aid Drop in the Bucket, a group that helps fund the construction of sanitation systems and water wells at schools in sub-Saharan Africa.
The event will go down at the Avalon Hollywood in California on Nov. 30. Slayer drum dynamo Dave Lombardo and members of Rob Zombie's solo band are also scheduled to perform.
Tickets will be available for pre-sale purchase at $25 through Ticketmaster at and at the door for an increased price with availability pending.
"Millions of people live without water on a daily basis when we as Americans treat it like used tissue paper," said Taylor when asked about the event. "It's only common sense to think that if I can do something to not only help, but also raise awareness, then that's exactly what I'm going to do. Drop in the Bucket is one of the most important and selfless causes I have ever had the privilege to be a part of. And I can only hope that I do some good for it."
