Booking any concert, even for charity, is a difficult task. To get artists to clear time in their schedules, often for free (it is for charity, after all) is quite a juggling act. But we suspect it gets easier when the show bears the name of [lastfm]John Lennon[/lastfm] and benefits the Playing For Change Foundation, especially looking at this year’s lineup!
Theatre Within’s [lastfm]John Lennon[/lastfm] Tribute is in its 30th year in 2010, and the New York City affair, scheduled for November 12th, might be featuring its best lineup ever. How about…
- [lastfm]Jackson Browne[/lastfm]
- [lastfm]Patti Smith[/lastfm]
- [lastfm]Cyndi Lauper[/lastfm]
- [lastfm]Aimee Mann[/lastfm]
- [lastfm]Keb’ Mo'[/lastfm]
- [lastfm]Joan Osbourne[/lastfm]
…just to name a few!
They’ll all be at the historic Beacon Theatre in New York City to pay tribute to the former Beatle, who would have turned 70 in early October, and help raise money for the Playing For Change Foundation, which builds music schools in poor countries.
