Marc Anthony and Beck lead the list of artists who will celebrate the music of John Lennon during a TNT taping Sept. 20 at New York's historic Radio City Music Hall. "Come Together: A Night for John Lennon" will be led by musical director Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics, and also will feature Moby and Nelly Furtado, according to a source, with additional artists expected. An edited version of the show is scheduled to air Oct. 9 on TNT.

A TNT spokesperson confirmed details of the event, but would not comment on the show's talent lineup. An official announcement is expected next week.

Producers had originally expressed interest in staging the Lennon tribute in May, but reportedly rescheduled due to the touring plans of several major acts that were interested in taking part.

The special follows TNT's "An All Star Tribute to Brian Wilson," which was staged in March at Radio City and premiered on the network on July 4. TNT inaugurated its series of tributes in 1998 with "Burt Bacharach: One Amazing Night," and has since staged events honoring Johnny Cash, Bob Marley, and Joni Mitchell

"Come Together" tickets -- ranging from $53.50 to $203.50 -- go on sale to the public Aug. 30 at 10 a.m. via Ticketmaster. A special 12-hour, password-protected Internet pre-sale for members of Radio City's "Backstage Access" program begins at 9 a.m. a day earlier. Several local radio stations will have separate passwords to access the pre-sale as part of a special promotion. There is a four-ticket limit.
