A “farewell” concert will be held in September for the “Forever Marilyn” statue that has been in downtown Palm Springs for more than a year, it was announced Monday.

The free concert, which will feature Beatles and Beach Boys tribute bands, is scheduled for Sept. 7 at the 26-foot-tall sculpture at Palm Canyon Drive and Tahquitz Canyon Way, according to the Palm Springs Bureau of Tourism.

The statue of film legend Marilyn Monroe was installed in May 2012 after a weeklong trip from its previous home in Chicago, and was originally scheduled to remain in Palm Springs through last month.

An arrangement was since made with the sculpture’s owner to allow it to stay in Palm Springs until early September, according to P.S. Resorts, which organized and helped fund the installation of “Forever Marilyn.”
