Neil Young is set to perform at a benefit concert hosted by Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea and Anthony Kiedis.

The star has been announced for the line-up of a benefit for the Silverlake Conservatory of Music being organised by Flea and Anthony.

The organisation also announced that the event will take place on October 30 in Silverlake, California, when Red Hot Chili Peppers will perform, too.

Flea founded the Silverlake Conservatory of Music in 2001 for music education, lessons and scholarships.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist said in a statement that he was "grateful" for all the help given to the organisation and that Neil performing at the event "is the greatest blessing".

It will also feature a silent auction with donations from Marc Jacobs, Tony Hawk, Pearl Jam, Gucci and others. The event costs 2,000 dollars per guest, and a 10-seat table is 25,000 dollars.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Your forceful personality makes people sit up and take notice of you. This is a great time to show off your expert knowledge. Demonstrating a command for facts and figures will result in a teaching or media position. Make sure you don't impose this air of authority at home. Your family won't appreciate being ordered around. You may be a superstar in intellectual circles, but you're just another relative on the domestic front. Don't bristle at your loved ones' irreverence. It's good for your ego.More
