Believe it or not, but shortly before it was announced that David Bowie had passed away, a tribute concert at New York City's Carnegie Hall was announced in honor of the music icon featuring Cyndi Lauper, The Roots and other star-studded performers.

"The Music of David Bowie at Carnegie Hall" event will still take place on March 31, but the show will be slightly revamped as a memorial concert. Additional acts set to hit the stage include Jakob Dylan, Bettye LaVette, Ann Wilson, Perry Ferrell and even some surprise special guests.

"The unexpected death of David Bowie has made this tribute to him into a memorial concert. While the series has had the surprise appearances and performances of the honoree several times in the past, this one will certainly become a poignant honor of his music by his friends, peers, and fans," the official event's website posted. "We are all deeply saddened at this news, the timing of our public on-sale bizarre in its timing, and the show is taking on many more emotions. RIP David and may God's love be with you… "

Tickets for the show can be purchased at the event's official website
