An all-star benefit concert in honour of the star will be held at the Beacon Theatre in New York City on November 12.

The line-up includes Jackson Browne, Patti Smith and Cyndi Lauper. Performers will also include Aimee Mann and Shelby Lynne, among others.

Proceeds will go to the Playing For Change Foundation, which promotes peace with music.
