Byrne, Bright Eyes Lead Tibet House

David Byrne, Ray Davies, Bright Eyes, Yo La Tengo, Keb’ Mo’, Nawang Khechog and artistic director Philip Glass will perform at the 14th annual Tibet House benefit concert. The event will be held Feb. 25 at New York’s Carnegie Hall. Tickets can be purchased by calling the venue at (212) 247-7800; tickets that include a fundraising reception with the artists can be obtained by calling Tibet House at (212) 807-0563.

Tibet House is dedicated to the proposition that the wisdom and arts of all human civilizations vitally enrich the emerging global culture and its many cultural and educational programs. The organization’s primary goal is to preserve and restore Tibet’s unique cultural and spiritual heritage. The concert also commemorates the Monlam Prayer Festival, which was established in 1409 but canceled by the Chinese government after it took over Tibet.

Last year’s event featured performances by David Bowie, Davies, Laurie Anderson, Rufus Wainwright and Ziggy Marley, among others.
