LONDON —

Dame Shirley Bassey and the British rock band Duran Duran will perform at amfAR's Cinema Against AIDS gala during this year's Cannes Film Festival.

Bassey, 76, will treat guests to some of her much-loved classics, while Duran Duran will give its only public performance of 2013.

Completing the musical line-up, British singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding and Tennessee four-piece Hot Chelle Rae will add pop flavor to the high-glamour charity event on May 23.

AmfAR representatives including Sharon Stone, Janet Jackson, Jessica Chastain and Heidi Klum will join a host of celebrity guests at the gala, which has become a hot ticket at Cannes. Now in its 20th year, the annual event has raised over $80 million for AIDS research.
