Benefit Concert For DJ AM, Crash Victims Planned

by at . Comments

As DJ AM continues to recover from severe burns suffered in a South Carolina plane crash which killed four others and seriously injured Travis Barker, some of his pals are preparing to welcome him home with a special concert.

The 35-year-old DJ AM (real name Adam Goldstein) has been "a very close friend ... for many years," organizers said in a statement. "We owe him a debt of gratitude that we can never repay, but we hope this helps just a bit."

The bash – set for October 14 at Avalon Hollywood – will feature celebrity DJs including the Grammy-winning Mark Ronson (brother of Samantha Ronson), Steve Aoki, Danny Masterson and Mixmaster Mike. Tickets are going for $20.

All proceeds will be donated to memorial funds for the victims.

Pilot Sarah Lemmon, 31, co-pilot James Bland, 52, security guard Charles Still, 25, and Barker's assistant and friend Chris Baker, 29, all perished in the crash.

DJ AM and Travis Barker, who both sustained second- and third-degree burns, were the only survivors, are expected to eventually make a full recovery.
