A David Bowie memorial concert is to be held at New York’s Carnegie Hall on March 31st.
The Music of David Bowie was originally billed as a tribute show featuring his songs, but organizers changed it to a memorial in the wake of his death.
The event, organised by Michael Dorf and City Winery, will feature 20 artists, each performing songs by Bowie. The concert is a benefit for a variety of music education programmes for underprivileged young people.
Tickets had only gone on sale on Monday, just as news of Bowie’s death was filtering through, and have already sold out. He died of cancer at the age of 69.
