35 years have passed since John Lennon has passed, but his spirit and work in the music industry live on.
With his 75th birthday around the bend, musicians around the globe are lining up to pay homage to one of the all-time greats with a massive tribute concert.
The event is called Imagine: John Lennon 75th Birthday Concert, and it will take place December 5 at New York City’s iconic Madison Square Garden. The event will then be shown on AMC on December 19 at 9 p.m.
In a press release, Yoko Ono said:
“It’s beautiful to see so many wonderful and talented musicians come together for this special show to celebrate John’s birthday. John’s art continues to give hope, light and happiness to generations of people everywhere. His belief that each of us can change the world continues to inspire the human race to believe in themselves, and his influence is everlasting in everyone’s hearts as we all share in the possibilities and power of music.”
Who are some of these musicians, you ask? We’re talking folks like Sheryl Crow, Brandon Flowers from The Killers, Peter Frampton, Kris Kristofferson, Tom Morello from Rage Against the Machine, Willie Nelson, The Roots, and Steven Tyler.
This will be EPIC!
