Debbie Harry to Headline Lennon Tribute Concert
NEW YORK Oct 8, 2014, 3:13 PM ET

Debbie Harry will perform at the 34th annual John Lennon charity tribute concert in New York City in December.

The announcement Wednesday by the nonprofit Theatre Within came a day before what would have been Lennon’s 74th birthday.

Other performers include Kate Pierson of the B-52s, Joan Osborne, Marshall Crenshaw and Ben E. King. The event will be held Dec. 5 at Symphony Space.

Yoko Ono said in a statement: “I share Theatre Within’s belief that music and the performing arts have a special power to bring people together and inspire us to make a positive difference. It’s beautiful that the Tribute continues to have such a powerful impact in John’s memory.”

Rock photographer Bob Gruen, who photographed Lennon during the years he lived in New York, will be honored with the first-ever John Lennon Real Love Award.

Proceeds will benefit Lennon and Ono’s Spirit Foundation. Ticket prices are $65, $85 and $105.
