Las Vegas - Tiger Jam, the charity concert hosted by golf star Tiger Woods, will make its return on April 30 with star singers John Mayer and Keith Urban performing for the benefit of the Tiger Woods Foundation.

The annual Las Vegas concert was not staged last year, organisers citing schedule disruptions between artist and venue availability.

Last year also saw Woods embattled by a sex scandal that kept him from the pro tour for five months and led to his divorce from wife Elin. Woods suffered the first winless year since turning pro in 2010 and has not won since the scandal erupted.

Urban, the husband of actress Nicole Kidman, and Mayer will join a list of Tiger Jam artists that includes Bon Jovi and Van Halen.

"I'm thrilled these two talented musicians are joining us for Tiger Jam," Woods said.

"We've had so much success with this event over the last 13 years, raising more than $12 million for programs of my Foundation, and we are excited to continue that tradition."
