The second annual MusiCares® MAP Fund benefit concert, will be held on Friday, May 12, 2006, at The Music Box in Hollywood, CA. Tickets are offered at three price levels: floor placement in a private living room grouping of 10 for $10,000; floor seating individual tickets for $1,000 each; and balcony seating individual tickets for $250 each. All proceeds will benefit the MusiCares MAP Fund, which provides members of the music community access to addiction recovery treatment regardless of their financial situation.

"This year's MAP Fund benefit continues an ongoing tradition to honor those individuals in our community who courageously work to help musicians in need," said MusiCares and Recording Academy® President Neil Portnow. "The demand for addiction recovery programs remains strong, and it is events such as this that raise visibility about the critical work of the MusiCares MAP Fund and recognize those individuals who continue to champion our cause."

Established in 1989 by The Recording Academy, MusiCares provides a safety net of critical assistance for music people in times of need. MusiCares' services and resources cover a wide range of financial, medical and personal emergencies, and each case is treated with integrity and confidentiality. MusiCares also focuses the resources and attention of the music industry on human service issues that directly impact the health and welfare of the music community. For more information, please visit www.musicares.com.

As a result of acquiring MAP in September 2005, MusiCares developed the MAP Fund as a pool of resources set aside specifically to address addiction recovery and sober living needs. Named for the Musicians Assistance Program and founded by longtime musician and addiction recovery activist Buddy Arnold, the MusiCares MAP Fund represents the joint goal of MAP and MusiCares to provide members of the music community access to addiction recovery treatment regardless of their financial circumstances.

Interesting... I wonder who will play drums (Panhead maybe?), or perhaps they'll surprise with a rare acoustic number or participate in a jam with some of the other performers?

Anyway, it’s great that they support fellow musicians through the MusiCares MAP Fund, and this should also put a definitive end to the many rumours circulating lately about Slash returning to GNR :D

This is great.  It'll be good see Slash with the other guys again.  Hopefully this puts any BS rumor to rest.  I hope they do a new acoustic song or something, kind of like they did with "You Got No Right" at Smashbox a couple years ago, to tide us over til the new album.

Some wiseman would come up with a reason explaining that this would be their last public event together or something absurd as that. BS will never end darling. :wink:

nope, he is free to roam  :P He just can't leave California. ;)
He'll be covering Camp Freddy radio on Saturday nights for the summer since Dave Navarro will be out on tour and busy with Rock Star and Billy Morrison will be sort of in and out all summer...
