Taj Mahal, Jackie Greene and TV on the Radio Confirmed For March Rolling Stones Tribute Show
TV On The Radio & Jovanotti, Peaches, Marc Cohn, Taj Mahal and Jackie Greene have joined the lineup for Michael Dorf’s upcoming Rolling Stones tribute show. The all-star benefit performance will take place at New York’s Carnegie Hall on March 13. These acts join a lineup that already includes: Rich Robinson, Rosanne Cash, Glen Hansard, The Mountain Goats, Steve Earle and others. The concert will celebrate the 40th anniversary of The Rolling Stones’ Hot Rocks 1964-1971, with each artist playing a song from the album.
The concert marks the eighth installment of an annual series to raise crucially needed funds for music education programs for underprivileged youth. The total funds raised in the past by the series have exceeded $600,000. Dorf’s previous tributes honored Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, R.E.M., and The Who.
