NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) — After the first event sold out, organizers have added a second show at Radio City Music Hall, Billboard reported.
The new show, set for April 1st, will feature Cat Power, Perry Farrell, Heart’s Ann Wilson and the Polyphonic Spree, the New York Times reported. The show will take place on the day after the original tribute concert takes place at New York's Carnegie Hall.
Organized by New York-based promoter Michael Dorf, the original tribute show, set March 31st at Carnegie Hall, features a line up that includes Cyndi Lauper, Michael Stipe, Laurie Anderson, The Roots and more; Cat Power, Farrell, and Wilson are playing both nights.
As previously reported in CelebrityAccess, the tribute concert had originally been planned to honor Bowie, with tickets going on sale in a tragic coincidence just hours before the announcement of Bowie's death.
"The unexpected death of David Bowie has turned this tribute, which we have worked on for the past 7 months, into a memorial concert. While the series has featured surprise appearances and performances of honorees several times in the past, this year's concert will certainly be remembered as a poignant celebration of his music by his friends, peers and fans. We are deeply saddened by this news. The timing of our public on-sale is bizarre in its timing and the show is taking on many more emotions," a statement from Michael Dorf Presents said at the time. – Staff Writers
