Hours after his passing due to his battle with cancer, David Bowie‘s tribute concert was already being announced via Twitter. Finally, there’s more details.
First things first, you definitely don’t want to miss out on this show. Some artists that are confirmed to be there include, Cyndi Lauper, The Roots, The Mountain Goats and Tony Visconti. However, I’m sure the list will go on.
The event is to take place at Carnegie Hall, March 31st, 2016. How did this get planned so quickly? Well, if you must know this concert has been in the works since before the legend’s death. Surprised?
More information regarding tickets can be found here. So what are you waiting for?

Madonna had another idea up her sleeve. It’s not sure if she plans to attend or be a part of the concert but we do know one thing. She held her own tribute to the great on her own.
Tuesday evening in Houston, Texas the singer performed Bowie’s classic “Rebel Rebel”
“I want to pay tribute to a man who inspired my career. That is correct. If you haven’t heard about David Bowie, then look him up motherfuckers. Ok? He was one of the geniuses in the music industry. One of the greatest singer, songwriters of the 20th century and he changed my life. He showed me it was ok to be different.”
