She’s been teasing it for weeks on social media, and now Madonna‘s upcoming special gig in Miami has been officially announced. Billed as “an evening of music, art, mischief and performance,” the Madge-presented event will take place on Friday, December 2, during Art Basel, at Miami Beach’s Faena Forum. The proceeds will benefit Raising Malawi.

Along for the ride will be Late Late Show host/Carpool Karaoke star James Corden as master of ceremonies, plus guests Ariana Grande, Chris Rock and Sean Penn. Per a press release, those in attendance will have the opportunity to bid on art pieces from both well-known and burgeoning artists from around the world during a live art auction.

Madonna is, of course, no stranger to intimate performances in 2016. On March 10, she staged her three-hour Tears Of A Clown show in Melbourne, Australia, where she sang little-performed deep cuts from her repertoire. The Material Girl also held a small acoustic concert at New York City’s Washington Square Park earlier this week, on the eve of the presidential election.
