David Bowie just celebrated his 69th birthday, released an album, “Blackstar,” and has a show, “Lazarus,” running Off Broadway. Now he is to be honored at Carnegie Hall with a concert featuring the Roots, Cyndi Lauper and the Mountain Goats. The concert, presented by Michael Dorf, who runs City Winery, will take place on March 31.

The performers also include Jakob Dylan, Bettye LaVette, Ann Wilson of Heart, Perry Farrell, and surprise guests. The house band will be put together by Mr. Bowie’s longtime collaborator Tony Visconti, who has worked as a producer for Mr. Bowie since 1969’s “Space Oddity.”

The concert is part of Mr. Dorf’s annual tribute series, which honored Bill Withers last year. Previous shows have been dedicated to Paul Simon, Prince and Bob Dylan. Proceeds will benefit Young Audiences New York, Little Kids Rock, Church Street School of Music, the Center for Arts Education, the American Symphony Orchestra and Grammy in the Schools.
