Lennon Tribute To Air Live From NYC; Dave Matthews, More Sign On

TNT Master's Series event adds relief efforts to beneficiaries.

“Come Together: A Night for John Lennon,” a tribute concert for the former Beatle featuring Stone Temple Pilots, Beck and Alanis Morissette, will be broadcast live from New York after being postponed in the wake of last week’s terrorist attacks.

The event will take place and air on October 2, according to a TNT spokesperson. The sixth installment of the cable network’s TNT Master’s Series was to be taped last Thursday and broadcast on what would have been Lennon’s 61st birthday, October 9 (see “Beck, STP, Alanis Come Together For John Lennon” ).

The fundraising concert has been renamed “Come Together: A Night for John Lennon’s Words & Music, Dedicated to New York City & Its People.” In addition to its original beneficiaries — the Violence Policy Center and the Brady Center To Prevent Gun Violence, united with the Million Mom March — the event will assist the American Red Cross, the September 11th Fund, the International Association of Fire Fighters, the New York Fraternal Order of Police WTC Fund, the National Organization for Victim Assistance and the Twin Towers Fund.

The show’s lineup, which also features Nelly Furtado, Lou Reed, Marc Anthony, Moby, Seal, Cyndi Lauper and Shelby Lynne, has been updated to include Dave Matthews, the Isley Brothers and Yolanda Adams. Additional artists are expected to be announced shortly.

Tickets for the postponed event, which is scheduled to take place at Radio City Music Hall, will be honored on October 2.
