Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott, Lucinda Williams, and former Crowded House frontman Neil Finn are among the artists who will take part in a series of concerts across the country to champion women's health issues. The Vanity Fair "In Concert" performance series will take place in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles, presented by Vanity Fair magazine, fashion designer Donna Karan International, and the women's health/advocacy organization Step Up Women's Network.

The Oct. 22 show at New York's Irving Plaza boasts a lineup including Elliott, Tweet, and Howie Day. Williams, Aimee Mann, Finn, Joe Henry, Rosey, and John Doe will perform Nov. 5 at Los Angeles' Wiltern Theatre. A third concert will take place Nov. 3 at Chicago's Metro, but performers for that show have not yet been announced.

Tickets for all three shows go on sale Saturday (Sept. 28) via Ticketmaster. All proceeds will benefit the Step Up Women's Network, which raises funds and awareness to advance women's social and health issues.

Elliott and Tweet intend to dedicate part of the New York show to their late friend and musical collaborator Aaliyah, by way of a special performance of Elliott's "Where My Girls At" featuring Eve. Elliott's new Elektra album, "Under Construction," is due Nov. 12. First single "Work It" shoots 24-11 on this week's Billboard Hot 100.
