CALGARY - Randy Bachman, Tom Cochrane and Corb Lund will be among the singers to perform at a benefit concert to help raise money for flood recovery efforts in southern Alberta.

Organizers announced Monday the full lineup for Alberta Flood Aid, to be held at Calgary's McMahon Stadium on Aug. 15.

The list also includes Jann Arden, Matthew Good, Colin James, Loverboy, Johnny Reid, The Sadies, The Sheepdogs and Ian Tyson.

The evening will be hosted by comedian Brent Butt.

All ticket proceeds will benefit The Calgary Foundation's Flood Rebuilding Fund.

The fund supports southern Alberta's long-term community rebuilding efforts, including the hardest hit areas of High River, Canmore and nearby First Nation reserves.

"We hope that this event will raise funds for those affected by the devastating flooding, but also bring our community together with incredible artists to celebrate the restorative power of music," said Peter Jurisic, chairman of Alberta Flood Aid.

"I am very pleased to see members of the music community donating their time and resources to raise money for flood relief," said Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi.

Tickets for the event start at $30 and will go on sale Friday. Ticketmaster has agreed to waive all service fees normally associated with ticket sales.
