Curtis Mayfield

Win Special Ticket Package To 70th Birthday Tribute To Curtis Mayfield At Lincoln Center On July 20

It has been 13 years since the great Curtis Mayfield, one of the world's most influential artists in soul, rock, funk and R&B, passed away, nearly a decade after a tragic 1990 accident left him paralyzed. Poignantly, Mayfield would have marked his 70th birthday this year and that celebratory occasion will be marked by an all-star concert, "Here But I'm Gone: A 70th Birthday Tribute To Curtis Mayfield," on July 20 at Avery Fisher Hall, part of the Lincoln Center Festival.

Special guests include The Roots, TV on the Radio's Tunde Adebimpe and Kyp Maone, Aloe Blacc, Sinéad O'Connor, Mavis Staples, Bilal, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Meshell Ndegeocello and Mayfield's former band The Impressions. The Alternate Side is giving one lucky winner a four-ticket package to attend the concert; enter by Sunday, July 15 at 5 p.m. EDT.
