The Pussycat Dolls, Jessica Simpson, Disturbed, Filter, DJ Z-Trip and comedian Carlos Mencia will perform for U.S. troops at an undisclosed military base in Kuwait on March 10 as part of Operation MySpace, a three-hour concert that will also be broadcast live through the social networking site.

A condensed version of the concert, part of the MySpaceLive concert series, will air April 12 on cable channel FX. MySpace is producing the event in cooperation with the Department of Defense's Armed Forces Entertainment and the America Supports You program. AEG Live will serve as the production partner.

In addition to the Kuwait concert, family and friends of U.S. troops will be able to post videos and messages to the Operation MySpace profile.

Past MySpaceLive concerts have included performances from the Projekt Revolution tour with Linkin Park, rapper T.I. and electronic artist Paul Oakenfold.

In addition, MySpace will launched its second annual music tour -- which features French electronic duo Justice, Diplo, DJ Mehdi, Chromeo, Busy P and Fancy -- on March 3 at Stubbs in Austin, Texas.
