Mac Miller’s family is putting on a benefit concert later this month at the Los Angeles Greek Theatre for the late rapper.

“The support we’ve experienced is evident in this amazing lineup and is a testament to Malcolm’s incredible life,” Karen Myers, Miller’s mom shared in a statement,  according to Fox News Tuesday.

The star-studded list of performers for the tribute concert for the young rapper — born Malcolm James McCormick — is titled, “Mac Miller: A Celebration of Life” and includes names like Travis Scott, Chance The Rapper, John Mayer and Miguel just to name a few.

“Just Announced: The “Mac Miller: A Celebration of Life” concert to benefit & honor the launch of the Mac Miller Circles Fund (MMCF). @AndersonPaak, @chancetherapper, @trvisXX & more will perform on 10/31 @ the Greek Theatre. Tix on sale 10/5 at 10am PT,” Live Nation tweeted.

The show will go to “benefit and honor” the 26-year-old performer who was found unresponsive at his home in Los Angeles earlier this month. He was pronounced dead shortly afterward. In the past, he had struggled with addiction.

The concert will also mark the launch of the Mac Miller Circles Fund, which “will provide programming, resources and opportunities to youth from underserved communities, helping them recognize their full potential through exploration in the arts and community building.”
