Steve Earle to play Lennon tribute

Steve Earle is set to perform at the 33rd annual John Lennon charity tribute concert in New York City in December.

The nonprofit Theatre Within made the announcement on what would have been Lennon's 73rd birthday.

Mavericks lead singer Raul Malo, Bettye LaVette and Marc Cohn will also perform at Symphony Space during the December 6 event.

Yoko Ono said in a statement: "It's beautiful that Theatre Within continues to honour John's memory."

Proceeds will benefit John and Yoko's Spirit Foundations.

Teddy Thompson, Dana Fuch, Joan Osborne, Toshi Reagon and Rich Pagano of the Fab Faux will also perform Lennon classics at the concert.
