Bon Jovi fans will have a chance to see the group's front man perform at a charity concert next month.

New Jersey native Jon Bon Jovi will headline "The Hope Concert III" on Dec. 21 at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, the theater said on its Web site.

Other New Jersey artists slated to perform are Bobby Bandiera, Tim McLoone and The Shirleys, The Jersey Shore Rock-N-Soul Revue, Mark Pender & Richie "LaBamba" Rosenberg, Gary "U.S." Bonds and Southside Johnny.

Proceeds will go to The Valerie Fund, an organization that helps children with cancer and blood disorders.

Jon Bon Jovi performed at a similar benefit concert last year at the Count Basie Theatre along with Bruce Springsteen.

Ticket prices range from $100 to $500.
