It's now OFFICIAL. The David Lynch Foundation has updated their home page with a banner that adds Ringo to the mix, plus Ben Harper, who we had mentioned as a possibility.

Here's the concert page. It is as it was originally and has not changed.

LATE ADD: The premium ticket packages will be offered first, then the general admission. The highest premium package will be $100,000 and include 14 seats, plus soundcheck, rehearsal and backstage access, though there's no confirmation those paying this money will have access to either Ringo or Paul.

We've seen comments that a lot of people are wondering if  there will be any general admission tickets. We're told both Paul and Ringo's reps are concerned about this as well and don't want fans priced out, so general admission are being discussed. Price, though isn't known yet.

More updates on this when we get them.

    Steve - Just like you said. Now if you could use your superpowers and get them to bring down that $100,000 package to regular human prices.

    I'm an long-time (Beatles) fan and a (new) reader. Thanks for your great column! Reading about the Lynch Foundation event has got my feathers ruffled. Premium Ticket package at $100, teach CHILDREN transcendental meditation? Really? And in our current global economy? How about raising money to feed and clothe children and provide them with the kind of education that will teach them to use thier beautiful minds to read and write and CREATE peace! I'm disappointed that Paul and Ringo would participate in such untimely, "urban haute bourgeois" silliness.

    "provide them with the kind of education that will teach them to use thier beautiful minds to read and write and CREATE peace!"

    I think thats exactly what Paul, Ringo and the David Lynch Foundation think TM will do. People that can afford $100,000 for a ticket surely aren't only donating to this particular cause in a given year and are more than likely ALSO donating to charities that "clothe children."

    TM, according to lots of research, is a good thing for kids! Look at the state of our education system. Metal detectors and gun violence in schools is insane. Children need an outlet for stress. Developing these violent tendencies in the very insitutions that should teach them otherwise is ridiculous. If I was you I would do a little more investigation into the success of the DLF programs before being snotty.

    With this lovely economy these days, I definitely have $100,000 to spare! LOL :)

    I really wanted backstage passes too! Darn!
