Performing on March 31st and April 1st, Stipe and Pixies will also be joined by Blondie, Cat Power, Mumford and Sons, Anna Calvi and more.

Debbie Harry will be performing solo on March 31st and with Blondie on April 1st, with Amanda Palmer, Anna Calvi and Jherek Bischoff set to perform as a three-piece.

Cool, thanks for finding, AC :)! I'm sure this will be filmed- a really prestigious thing for Anna to do. And at least a little comfort for still missing Mr. B..

Thanks AC for finding this , and agree Louise, that it is good  to see Anna performing with some respected figures of the music world.
 I  see it is directed by Toni Visconti,  hope he notices Anna , he would be a great producer for her albums .

I would like she will not only play Blackstar with Amanda Palmer, but also Lady Grinning Soul or something else  alone...

Agree with you both, Michael and dogandclowns, as sad as the cause of this tribute show may be, but hopefully it will open some new doors for Anna.
I'm sure Amanda Palmer became aware of her through the "Lady Grinning Soul"-video on youtube, she mentioned it on her Twitter.

Great :)! I hope Anna gets to meet all these cool people of whom many are her idols like Patti Smith, the Pixies, etc. :)

Can't watch it live though, hope it will still be available in the internet later.

This is also going to be broadcast live and  free from  Amanda Palmers Facebook page .
I have to say that AP is incredibly efficient.   Will this be mentioned on Anna,s Fbook page ?..... .  I doubt it !

Yes the intro to the show was great   
But our worst fears were confirmed. .... The special guest is David Byrne  :(  :( :(
Thought we had seen the back of him.

annnnnd he boffed up strange weather really badly.  :o ??? she was badass and i feel like amanda's fans will really appreciate her art. david shouldn't have been up there and i'm always the one who sticks up for him but bahhh. not tonight. do you reckon he was drunk?

but john cameron mitchell straight up called her a "genius from england" which makes my little hedwig loving heart so full and happy.

Yes I  agree that bloody David Byrne completely ruined Anna ,s set.
 Anna had a good chance to play before a new audience, and she should not have had to put up with this idiot who cannot sing.
   I felt very sorry for Anna tonight, she did not deserve that !
