Following her celebrity-filled “We Are Plastic Ono Band” concert at the Brooklyn Academy of Music earlier this year, Yoko Ono has announced the special guests — including Lady Gaga — to be featured at her performances at Los Angeles‘ Orpheum Theater on Oct. 1-2.

Along with Gaga, who will share the stage with Plastic Ono Band on Oct. 2, Iggy Pop, the RZA, Perry Farrell and Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore will all contribute to the showcase’s two-night run.

Other guests for the Los Angeles shows include Carrie Fisher, Vincent Gallo, Haruomi Hosono, Harper Simon, Tune-Yards, Nels Cline and Mike Watt. Plastic Ono Band, which will play under the musical direction of Ono’s son Sean Lennon, previously welcomed Eric Clapton, Bette Midler, and Paul Simon as guests during Plastic Ono Band’s Brooklyn revival last February.

A week after the Los Angeles performances, Ono will celebrate what would have been John Lennon‘s 70th birthday with a series of peace-promoting events and a Plastic Ono Band concert in Iceland on Oct. 9.
