New York City’s Annual Tibet House US Benefit Concert has announced it will return this year for its 35th iteration on March 3. The event will be presented as a virtual edition for the second year in a row– instead of its usual in-house home at Carnegie Hall–and livestreamed through Mandolin.
This year’s Tibet House US Benefit Concert will honor artistic director Philip Glass’ 85th birthday which also falls on March 3 and features performances by Keanu Reeves, Trey Anastasio, Patti Smith, Laurie Anderson, Nathaniel Rateliff, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, Angélique Kidjo, Margo Price, Punch Brothers, The Fiery Furnaces, Tenzin Choegyal, and more. The event will also have special greetings by Iggy Pop, Bernard Sumner and more.
The Tibet House US Benefit Concert has been a constantly sold-out event for all three-and-a-half decades since its inception. Tickets for the virtual edition are on sale via Mandolin now ($25-$250) as well as sponsor-level cyber-tables starting at $5,000.
All proceeds from the event will go to support the work of Tibet House US, a non-profit educational institution and cultural embassy founded in 1987 at the request of His Holiness the Dalai Lama to ensure the survival of the Tibetan civilization.
