Default 33rd Annual John Lennon Tribute

Steve Earle Headlines Theatre Within’s 33rd Annual John Lennon Tribute

December 6 at Symphony Space, NYC

All-Star Evening of Lennon’s Music Features Raul Malo, Marc Cohn, Joan Osborne, Teddy Thompson, Dana Fuchs, Bettye LaVette and More

Proceeds to Be Shared with John & Yoko’s “Spirit Foundations”

October 9, 2013 (New York, NY) – Theatre Within, the grassroots non-profit behind the annual celebration of John Lennon in NYC, today announced the line-up for the 33rd Annual John Lennon Tribute on Friday, December 6 at 8pm at Symphony Space in New York City,

Music legend and three time Grammy Award winner Steve Earle will top a stellar line-up including Raul Malo (lead singer of the Mavericks), Marc Cohn, Teddy Thompson, Dana Fuchs ("Sexy Sadie" in the hit film, Across The Universe), and returning fan favorites Joan Osborne, R&B great Bettye LaVette, Toshi Reagon, Rich Pagano (of the Fab Faux). Lennon Tribute creator and MAD Magazine Senior Editor Joe Raiola will be appearing for his 33rd consecutive year. Plus, The Buffers, an a cappella group from Hamilton College, NY has planned a special all vocal medley honoring the music legend.

“It’s beautiful that Theatre Within continues to honor John’s memory and have such a powerful and positive impact with its annual Tribute to him,” said Yoko Ono.

The Tribute, produced in association with Music Without Borders, brings together nearly four generations of artists to celebrate John Lennon’s music, life and timeless message of peace and love. Fittingly, proceeds will be shared with Spirit Foundations, established in 1978 by John and Yoko as a vehicle to support charities that address the problems of the aging, abused women and children, and victims of terrorism and natural disasters.

Theatre Within is dedicated to furthering the performing arts as a positive social force through concerts, theatrical productions and workshops. In recent years, the non-profit’s Annual John Lennon Tribute has raised money to fund education programs for homeless children, feed the hungry, build music schools in the Third World, and support Hurricane Sandy relief.

At Yoko’s invitation, Theatre Within chose Spirit Foundations as this year’s Tribute charity recipient. “I can’t think of a more wonderful way of furthering John Lennon’s vision for a better world than by contributing to the philanthropic organization he founded,” said Theatre Within President, Irina Vekselman.

As for the Tribute itself, Joe Raiola, who has been there for all of them, says this year’s line-up is among the best ever. “It’s hard to compare from one year to the next because we always attract such great artists – everybody wants to sing Lennon’s songs, but this group may be my personal favorite.”

Tickets for Theatre Within’s 33rd Annual John Lennon Tribute are on sale and available online at or by telephone at 212-864-5400 and at the Symphony Space Box Office, Tuesday – Sunday, 1pm – 6 pm. Ticket prices are $65, $85 and $105. VIP packages are also available, some of which include a pre-show champagne reception with Tribute artists and start at $150.

Theatre Within recently launched “Friends of the Annual John Lennon Tribute” campaign with the goal of establishing an ongoing endowment to produce the Tribute for many years to come. Contributors of $35 or more receive unique Lennon-themed thank you gifts, ranging from The 30th Annual John Lennon Tribute Collectors Edition CD to an extremely limited edition of the Double Fantasy Stripped Down CD, autographed by Yoko Ono and the album’s producer Jack Douglas.
