Last night's concert included Patti Smith, Pixies, Michael Stipe, Debbie Harry, The Flaming Lips, J Mascis, Perry Farrell, Cyndi Lauper, Cat Power, Laurie Anderson, Robyn Hitchcock, The Mountain Goats, Ann Wilson of Heart, Rickie Lee Jones, Jakob Dylan and more. (Tonight's lineup will perform at Radio City Music Hall and is very similar with a few additions.) Tony Visconti, who worked on 13 of Bowie's albums including Blackstar, will be leading the house band, Holy Holy, again tonight, which includes Woody Woodmansey on drums. Both are original members of The Spiders from Mars.
Tonight's show at Radio City Music Hall is sold out, but you can stream it here (this will cost $5 and 100% of the revenues will go to the non-profit organizations).
