IGGY POP, FKA TWIGS, SHARON JONES, BASIA BULAT and more made last night's 26th annual TIBET HOUSE U.S. BENEFIT CONCERT at CARNEGIE HALL in NEW YORK CITY an unforgettable event. Taking the audience on a journey from meditative string performances to a full frenetic rock show, the evening was under the direction of PHILIP GLASS, who served as curator and artistic director for the evening.
Harpist LAVINIA MEIJER, FODAY MUSA SUSO and GLASS opened with a four-song series which left the entire room silent until erupting into applause after MEIJER closed out her solo "Metamorphis #2." That was followed with an explosive performance by SHARON JONES accompanied by the PATTI SMITH BAND. FKA TWIGS was next, creating a multi-sensory experience with the music. GOGOL BORDELLO had the crowd dancing in their seats again, leading into a dynamic performance by IGGY POP, beginning with brooding spoken word performances of before closing the show by paying tribute to the late DAVID BOWIE with a cover of "The Jean Genie," and the final song of the night, "Tonight," joined by SHARON JONES.
