As DJ AM continues to recover from the tragic South Carolina plane crash which killed four others and seriously injured Travis Barker, his pals are preparing to welcome him home with a special benefit concert.

The 35-year-old DJ (whose real name is Adam Goldstein) has been “a close friend … for many years,” organizers said in a statement. “We owe him a debt of gratitude that we can never repay, but we hope this helps just a bit.”

The bash – to be held Oct. 14 at Avalon Hollywood – will include performances from celebrity DJs, including Mark Ronson, Steve Aoki, Danny Masterson and Mixmaster Mike.

Tickets (available at cost $20 – with proceeds going to the memorial funds established crash victims.

The Sept. 19 crash claimed the lives of pilot Sarah Lemmon, 31, of Anaheim Hills, Calif.; co-pilot James Bland, 52, of Carlsbad, Calif.; security guard Charles Still, 25, of Los Angeles; and Barker’s assistant Chris Baker, 29, also of Los Angeles.

AM and Barker, who both sustained second- and third-degree burns, are expected to make a full recovery.
