The Eagles will perform live on May 7 to honor their long-time manager Irving Azoff and his wife Shelli at the Azoff’s presentation of The Spirit of Life Award.
The Azoff’s will receive The Spirit Award, the City of Hope’s highest philanthropic honor at Universal Studios with the Eagles performing at the Gibson Amphitheatre at the site.
Proceeds from the day will benefit lifesaving research, treatment and education programs for cancer, diabetes, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases at City of Hope.
‘We are grateful and privileged to receive this year’s Spirit of Life award, and are proud to help recognize the incredible work being done by researchers at City of Hope,’ the Azoffs said in a statement. ‘The institution’s level of advanced research into finding cures for life-threatening diseases is unparalleled, and we’re pleased to support its vision.’
The concert, to be emcee’d by Billy Bush, will also include Big Time Rush, Darren Criss and the Warblers, Greyson Chance and Cody Simpson.
Meanwhile over at Universal Studios, tram tours will be conducted by Kourtney, Kim, Khloe & Rob Kardashian, and Kris, Bruce, Kendall, & Kylie Jenner.
‘We are pleased to bestow our highest philanthropic honor to Shelli and Irving Azoff,’ said Gary Stiffelman, president, City of Hope’s Music and Entertainment Industry Group. ‘They are a model of philanthropic commitment and an inspiration to everyone who seeks to make cancer a curable and ultimately preventable disease.’
Irving Azoff is the executive chairman of Live Nation Entertainment and chairman and chief executive of the Front Line Management group. The Azoff’s have four children and live in Beverly Hills, California.

People: Bristol Palin, Mindy Kaling, Steven Tyler, Chris Colfer
Let’s hope Bristol Palin and Chris Colfer can find something to talk about (we’d suggest Quinn’s teenage pregnancy from season one of Glee, and not Sue Sylvester’s immortal dis to Santana and Brittany, “You may be the two stupidest teens I’ve ever encountered, and that’s saying something: I once taught a cheerleading seminar to a young Sarah Palin”). Burning questions: Will Steven Tyler be able to refrain from hurling inappropriate compliments Bristol’s way, and if he succumbs, will Mindy Kaling do humanity a favor and post them all on Twitter?
No but… What do Chris and Bristol have to talk about tho?
