Due to the ongoing threat of COVID-19, New York City’s Tibet House Benefit will pivot to a special livestream format on Feb. 17, featuring the likes of Eddie Vedder, Phoebe Bridgers, Brittany Howard, Valerie June, Angélique Kidjo, Laurie Anderson, Tenzin Choegyal, Rubin Kodheli and more.
“One of the longest-running and most renowned live cultural events in New York City, The 34th Annual Tibet House US Benefit Concert will return this year for a special virtual edition combining live and pre-recorded segments streaming via Mandolin, the premiere concert livestream platform for artists, venues, and fans,” reads an official description. “For the first time ever, this year’s concert offers viewers around the world the unique opportunity to experience the warmth, sense of community and amazing music the evening has provided for so many years at Carnegie Hall.”
The annual benefit raises money and awareness for NYC’s Tibet House US, which was founded in 1987 at the request of the Dalai Lama and continues to strive to maintain and protect Tibetan culture.
Virtual passes for the benefit are on sale now.
