Sean "P. Diddy" Combs will host the United We Stand benefit concert Saturday (Feb. 2) at New Orleans' Zephyr Field. Rappers Bubba Sparxxx, Jermaine Dupri, Fabolous, Jadakiss, and Black Robb are scheduled to appear, with Biz Markie DJing between sets. The event will be filmed for future DVD release by KBK/Andora Pictures.

The concert, to benefit the families of African-American firefighters killed on Sept. 11, is being presented by New Orleans Saints football player Joe Johnson and the International Association of Black Professional Firefighters.

Although not affiliated with the earlier United We Stand benefit last October in Washington, D.C., the event bolsters the festivities lined up in conjunction with the National Football League's Super Bowl XXXVI in New Orleans this weekend. As previously reported, a host of top music stars will participate in game-day performances, including Paul McCartney, Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige and Marc Anthony, No Doubt, and Barenaked Ladies.
