Patti Smith

The high priestess of punk rock, New York City’s eternally romantic artist, spiritual heir to Rimbaud, Bolaño, Ginsberg, and the Beat generation, will merge music and poetry in her own unparalleled way for a dazzling concert at the Odeon. Having made her mark on the global music scene with anthems such as “Because the Night” and having received literary accolades (National Book Award winner for her memoir Just Kids), the distinguished visual artist and tireless activist will inspire us, move us, and make us believe once again that we have the power to change the world: “People have the power!”
