Aretha Franklin tribute happening at Carnegie Hall w/Antibalas, Todd Rundgren, Glen Hansard, Taj Mahal, more
Carnegie Hall is playing host to a big tribute to Aretha Franklin in 2017, with an all-star performance that goes down on March 6. The lineup of talent includes Antibalas, Melissa Etheridge, Kenny Loggins, Ann Wilson, Todd Rundgren, Sarah Dash, Glen Hansard, Rhiannon Giddens, Taj Mahal, Living Colour, Allen Stone, Bettye Lavette, and more. It’s being put on by Michael Dorf, who does a tribute like this every year, like the Bowie tribute this year or the Bill Withers tribute in 2015.
Aretha isn’t confirmed to be at the tribute, but she does have shows of her own coming up, including an NYC area show on Long Island. That goes down May 13 at NYCB Theater at Westbury, and tickets are still on sale.
