A Lennon in Liverpool
Sean Ono Lennon has been in Liverpool for a few days, to unveil a university performance centre named in honour of his mother, Yoko Ono.
Sean Ono Lennon will open Liverpool University’s new “world class” culture centre, named after his mother Yoko Ono Lennon. Found on the corner of Grove Street and Oxford Street, the Yoko Ono Lennon Centre will house teaching facilities and will be the home of the Tung Auditorium – the University ‘s state-of-the-art concert hall. It will open on Friday with an evening gala concert held in honour of Yoko Ono Lennon.
Yoko Ono Lennon said: “I am thrilled to be recognised with the naming of the new performance centre at the University of Liverpool. Thank you to the University and to the people of Liverpool for this wonderful honour.
“Liverpool has become part of me from years of going there, and with this new centre part of me will always be there – for that I’m very thankful. I think John is smiling about it too. I’m also very thankful that our son, Sean is there in Liverpool for the celebrations around the opening.”
Meanwhile, Beatles fans on a pilgrimage to London and Liverpool had a pleasant surprise when they were in town.
Sean had a funny tweet:
Someone asked me if I was famous last night and I said ‘no I’m just related to some famous people.’ And they said ‘Well you look exactly like Ozzy Osbourne.’ And I believe they meant that as the highest compliment. So I chose to take it as such. (In the Pool day 2).
