David Bowie tribute concert has been announced hours after the legendary musician passed away at the age of 69. Bowie died following an 18-month battle with cancer.

The concert, scheduled for Mar. 31 and taking place at Carnegie Hall in New York City, will feature the Roots, Cyndi Lauper, Perry Farrell, the Mountain Goats, Jakob Dylan and more. The event was planned prior to Bowie’s death and was scheduled to be announced today, according to the Mountain Goats’ John Darnielle.

More artists will likely be added to the concert lineup following the news of Bowie’s passing. Tony Visconti, who shared powerful words about Bowie and the meaning of just-released album Blackstar on Monday morning (Jan. 11), will coordinate the house band.
