According to Eltonjohn.com, Davey Johnstone, Nigel Olsson, Guy Babylon, John Mahon and Bob Birch, along with singers Ken Stacey and Billy Trudel, are to perform at a benefit concert in Los Angeles on February 2, 2003.

The concert is a fundraiser for Lupin Hill Elementary School's Music and Arts Programme. Many of the band members' children are pupils at the school.

Tickets are available through Ticketmaster.

The benefit will be hosted by Alex Kingston (from ER) and Jim Moret (from CNN). Children from the Lupin Hills Tiger Chorale will also perform a selection of songs with members of Elton's Band. A collectible guitar signed by Elton John and other stars will be on display and up for auction.
