Jane's Addiction rocker Perry Farrell, Michelle Branch and Macy Gray are devoting their talents to a charity concert raising money for HIV and AIDS causes in India.

Proceeds from the ONE NIGHT IN INDIA gig - which takes place on 8 June (04) at the PAULEY PAVILION in Los Angeles - will benefit the GLOBAL FUND, a Geneva, Switzerland-based foundation that aims to fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.

The concert was also planning to provide cash for the AMERICAN INDIA FOUNDATION, which aims to accelerate social and economic change in India, but the organisation has pulled out of the event.

The star line-up also includes Irish singer Damien Rice, and Asian-influenced multi-instrumentalists TALVIN SINGH, Nitin Sawhney (corr) and Karsh Kale.
