The concert will take place on March 13th and will benefit musical education programs for underprivileged youth. More artists will be added to the bill, but each of the twenty-one performers will cover one of the songs from the band’s hits collection.

Rolling Stone reports that this will be the eighth installment in philanthropist Michael Dorf’s series of fundraising events at Carnegie Hall. Others have included CBS-FM favorites Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young, and Elton John.
