Residents of New York City will get the first chance to see the historic 2009 David Lynch Foundation Concert “Change Begins Within.” The concert includes a set from Paul McCartney featuring Ringo Starr! The 90 minute special will premiere on New York’s PBS station WNET-TV on April 29th.

The show, which includes Donovan, Mike Love, Jerry Seinfeld, and Howard Stern, to name a few, originally took place on April 4, 2009, before a sold-out audience at New York’s Radio City Music Hall. The special contains footage of each of the show’s featured acts highlighted by Paul’s set with Ringo. Among the songs Paul performs are the appropriately titled “Cosmically Conscious” and the finale, “I Saw Her Standing There.” Though there is no word on other planned telecasts, sources tell us it will be offered to other affiliates as well, which could potentially bring it to a local PBS station near you!
