More artists will be announced soon for the event, which will mark the 25th anniversary of the concerts.  The last time the event was held, in 2012, the theme was "Music from the Silver Screen," and the lineup included Taylor, Elton John, Bruno Mars, Jennifer Hudson, country stars Vince Gill and Rosanne Cash, and even Meryl Streep.

The Rainforest Fund was founded by in 1989 by Sting and his wife, Trudie Styler.  Over the past 23 years, it has helped to preserve tens of thousands of square miles of rainforest around the globe.

High-priced packages are now available at the Rainforest Fund's website, and if you've got anywhere from $600 to $50,000, you can watch the show in style and, depending on the ticket level, even attend the after-party with the stars.  Regular tickets start at $150; visit to order.
