Iggy Pop, Nels Cline and Mike Watt are performing on Oct. 1 only, while Gaga, Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore are performing on Oct. 2.
Lady Gaga, who angered Beatles fan a few months ago when Sean Lennon tweeted a photo of her playing John's white piano, performed "Imagine," Lennon's signature song of hope, at last October's Human Rights Campaign gathering in Washington, D.C. (she changed the song's lyrics to refer to the 1998 murder of gay college student Matthew Shepard).
EMI is also reissuing a giant box set of Lennon's solo albums on Oct. 5, along with some previously unreleased home recordings.
