Tibet House US announced that Debbie Harry will join the eclectic line-up for the 32nd Annual Tibet House US Benefit Concert on February 7th. The concert, one of the longest-running and most renowned live cultural events in NYC, will return to The Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall for an evening full of amazing music and one-night-only collaborations.
The night will also feature esteemed composer Philip Glass as the evening's Artistic Director, Stephen Colbert, Jason Isbell, Nathaniel Rateliff, Jon Batiste, New Order's Bernard Sumner, Phil Cunningham, Tom Chapman (joined by Joe Duddell), Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Angélique Kidjo, Laurie Anderson (who will be joined by renowned cellist Rubin Kodheli)and Tenzin Choegyal. Uma Thurman, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Peter Sarsgaard and Arden Wohl will serve as the evening's honorary chairs.
