Lucerna to host public tribute on Friday

Mr Havel’s brother Ivan has organised a public memorial concert on Friday evening at the family’s Lucerna Palace on Wenceslas Square. The rock group The Plastic People of the Universe, which was closely associated with Václav Havel, will be playing along with other groups of the dissident music scene, Garage, Hudba Praha and the Velvet Underground Revival. Other areas of the palace will offer documentary films about the former president and other tributes.
