Private concert! 4 experiences you can buy from celebs

And it’s all for charity. Well, some of it is for charity.

IF YOU’VE EVER dreamed of pressing flowers with Vin Diesel, or going cave-diving with Avril Lavigne, then you are NOT ALONE may be in luck.

A new website sells unique “experiences” with famous people – with some of the money going to charity. Cave diving and flower pressing aren’t part of it yet, but who knows? We heard Vin is a devil for the camellias.

Luminary Lane – which says it “enables celebrities to sell personalised items and VIP experiences to fans” – doesn’t have many people on its books at this stage. But here are 4 things you can buy:

1. Used dress – $7,500

From Shakira, who’s offering the togs from her Get It Started video (with Pitbull) for the bargain price of seven and a half big ones. You won’t be able to wear it though, because Shakira is TITCHY.

Here’s the dress in action. Hopefully she didn’t sweat it up.

2. Private concert – price on request

Offered by Stephan Jenkins of Third Eye Blind (remember them? No?) who says:

This is the ultimate way to connect with me and 3eb. Personalized, intimate and memorable. Let’s get your friends together and throw a kick-ass party.

You have to undergo a background check first though, in case you try and stuff the band into the back of a white Transit van and drive them back to 1997.

Let’s relive that for a second, shall we?

3. Tennis and ‘delicious’ lunch – $3,000

This one comes courtesy of tennis-coach-to-the-stars Brad Gilbert, the man who taught Andy Murray and Andre Agassi how to knock a ball around.

After a two-hour “hitting session” (he’s still talking about tennis, right?), you retire to the Gilbert gaff for a “one (1) hour lunch … home-cooked by his amazing wife, Kim.”

Don’t bother asking Gilbert why he doesn’t wear a tie though, because here he is explaining exactly that:

4. ‘Your Dream Experience’ with Madonna

Not strictly up for grabs immediately, but Madge has signed up for the site. And on her page you can “create your dream experience” with the star – suggesting what you’d like to do and what you’d pay for it. For maximum chances of success, we suggest you (a) keep it clean, and (b) mention pigeon-fancying. Apparently she loves it.*

Just to whet your appetite, here’s Madonna sending her young son to get drenched on national TV. Nice lady.
