Theatre Within in association with Music Without Borders, presents The 37th Annual John Lennon Tribute charity concert. A New York City tradition since 1981, the Tribute joyously celebrates John Lennon's life, music, and timeless message of peace and love.
This year's Tribute features Patti Smith, who will receive the 2017 "John Lennon Real Love Award" in recognition of her extraordinary artistic achievements and lifelong commitment to social activism.
Ms. Smith, who will play a set of her favorite John Lennon and Beatles songs, will be joined by Joan Osborne, Rhett Miller, Marshall Crenshaw, Indian-American soul sensation Zeshan B, Rich Pagano of the Fab Faux, plus Aric Iris, Elaine Caswell (Cyndi Lauper), The Kennedys, Anastasia René (Greg Allman Band), Fatboy Kanootch, Leslie Mendelson, and Victory Boyd.
To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, the album will be performed in its entirety
All proceeds benefit Theatre Within's ongoing free workshops in creative expression and mindfulness at Gilda's Club, NYC for children who have lost a parent to cancer, adult cancer survivors, and those undergoing treatment. For more details, visit LennonTribute.org.
