Former VAN HALEN/EXTREME frontman Gary Cherone has been added to the already illustrious line-up for this year's White Ribbon Concert at Toronto's Phoenix Concert Theatre on June 8, according to Chart Attack. The charity concert, now in its seventh year, is spearheaded by THE TEA PARTY's Jeff Martin in an effort to raise awareness about violence against women. Each year, Martin and his buddies jump in front of a house band and bang off some cover songs, all in the name of raising some cash for the White Ribbon organization. Other artists scheduled to appear at this year's event are THE TREWS, SNOW, members of BILLY TALENT, JEFF HEALEY and TODD KERNS, among others. Tickets for the show are available for $25 through all Ticketmaster outlets. VIP tickets (which include food, drinks and access to the stars) are going for $100 and can be purchased through www.whiteribbon.com. The concert is an all-ages event, but the VIP room is only open to those 19 or older.
