Tribute concert planned for Lennon's 70th birthday
NEW YORK (AP) - September 14, 2010 -- John Lennon's 70th birthday is Oct. 9, but the celebrations will go on after that.
An all-star benefit concert in honor of the former Beatle is scheduled in November with a lineup that includes Jackson Browne, Patti Smith and Cyndi Lauper.
The concert will be held at the Beacon Theatre in New York City on Nov. 12. Proceeds will go to the Playing for Change Foundation, which promotes peace with music.
The concert will be presented by the group Theatre Within. Performers will also include Aimee Mann and Shelby Lynne, among others.
Lennon was killed 30 years ago, two months after celebrating his 40th birthday.
