Blacc most recently appeared on Avicii’s single “SOS,” which appears on the DJ/producer’s posthumous third studio album Tim.

In addition to Blacc, the concert will feature many of the singers, including Adam Lambert and Rita Ora, who were on Avicii’s recordings and it will mark the first time many of them have been performed the songs live.
