The show -- dubbed "Fire Relief: The Concert for Central Texas" -- will take place at the Frank Erwin Center at the University of Texas in Austin. Tickets go on sale at noon CT Friday.
Regular tickets are priced from $25 to $100. VIP passes, priced at $250, include premium seating and access to a VIP lounge.
Losses from the late-summer wildfires in Central Texas are expected to hit $250 million, according to local news reports. According to concert organizers, many of the short-term needs of people affected by the fires have been met; the concert's goal is to address the long-term fallout.
Proceeds from the event will go to the Central Texas Wildfire Fund at the Austin Community Foundation, which will disperse funds to Central Texas community organizations.
