NEW YORK (AP) — Steve Earle will perform at the 33rd annual John Lennon charity tribute concert in New York City in December.
The nonprofit Theatre Within made the announcement Wednesday, on what would have been Lennon's 73rd birthday.
Mavericks lead singer Raul Malo, Bettye LaVette and Marc Cohn will also perform at Symphony Space for the Dec. 6 event.
Yoko Ono said in a statement that "it's beautiful that Theatre Within continues to honor John's memory."
Proceeds will benefit Lennon and Ono's Spirit Foundations. Ticket prices are $65, $85 and $105.
Teddy Thompson, Dana Fuch, Joan Osborne, Toshi Reagon and Rich Pagano of the Fab Faux will also perform Lennon classics at the concert.
