The Roots, Mountain Goats, Cyndi Lauper, Perry Farrell & more playing David Bowie tribute concert at Carnegie Hall
As The NY Times eerily announced about two hours before today’s tragic news, Michael Dorf’s annual tribute concert at Carnegie Hall will be for the late, great David Bowie this year. The show happens March 31 with The Roots, The Mountain Goats, Cyndi Lauper, Jakob Dylan, Bettye LaVette, Ann Wilson of Heart, Perry Farrell, and “surprise guests.” Bowie’s longtime producer Tony Visconti is putting the house band together.
Tickets go on sale today (1/11) at 11 AM, and proceeds benefit Young Audiences New York, Little Kids Rock, Church Street School of Music, the Center for Arts Education, the American Symphony Orchestra and Grammy in the Schools.
Bowie’s latest album, Blackstar, came out three days ago, on his 69th birthday.

David Bowie's music, over the years, has meant more to me than I can say. We have lost someone who imparted comfort and strength to us.

Oh no I am so sorry to hear of David Bowie's passing. He was such a great artist and has lead the way for so many of us.
