Iggy Pop, New Order and Patti Smith are among the names announced to play the Tibet House benefit gig.

The Philip Glass-curated event will take place at New York’s Carnegie Hall on March 11 and will also see performances from The National’s Bryce Dessner, Joe Walsh and Nico Muhly, with more to be announced. Actress Maggie Gyllenhaal and her husband Peter Sarsgaard are to be the event’s honorary chairpersons, reports Rolling Stone.

Last year’s concert saw performances from Ariel Pink, My Morning Jacket’s Jim James, tUne-yArDs and Patti Smith. Tickets to this year’s concert are available here.

Meanwhile, former New Order bassist Peter Hook is to perform two more of the band’s albums with his current band The Light. The band will play New Order’s third and fourth albums 1985’s ‘Low-Life’ and 1986’s ‘Brotherhood’ from beginning to end at two special gigs in September. The shows will take place in London and Manchester and will also include classic singles dating from 1983 to 1987.

The Light have previously performed Joy Division’s ‘Unknown Pleasures’ and ‘Closer’ albums in full. At the beginning of last year (January 2013), they performed 1981′ ‘Movement’ and 1983’s ‘Power, Corruption & Lies’ too.
