Nathaniel Rateliff and Patti Smith will be performing at the 2022 Tibet House US virtual benefit concert, taking place on March 3.

The bill also includes Phish‘s Trey Anastasio, Laurie Anderson, and country artists Jason Isbell and Margo Price, as well as actor Keanu Reeves, who you may remember played bass in the ’90s alt rock band Dogstar.

Additionally, Iggy Pop and New Order‘s Bernard Sumner will be providing “special greetings” during the event.

Influential composer Philip Glass is the event’s artistic director.

Now in its 35th year, the annual concert raises money for Tibet House US, a non-profit organization that works to preserve Tibetan culture. It’s usually held in-person at New York City’s Carnegie Hall, but is taking place online for the second straight year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

You can watch the 2022 Tibet House US concert via the streaming platform Mandolin. For more info, visit Mandolin.com.
