John Lennon 80th Birthday Concert Event Changed to Worldwide Stream
On October 9th of this year, John Lennon would have turned 80 years of age. On the exact date of this momentous occasion, Friday evening, October 9, 2020, Beatles fans and music aficionados from all over the world will “come together” to view a special concert event entitled “Remember Lennon: Imagine 80.” Showtime is 7pm ETD.
The show is a speculative representation of a concert that Lennon may have performed had he still been alive and actually playing out. The production incorporates one of the world’s greatest John Lennon tribute artists along with a full backing band to present an evening of John Lennon’s Beatles and post-Beatles material live in concert. For Lennon’s 80th birthday, the concert will be streamed “across the universe,” for safety sake in the current state of the world, and to allow fans to enjoy the historic show in the comfort of their own home.
The evening stars famed Lennon impersonator Scot Arch, of “Beatlemania Now,” and will include not only Lennon’s earliest hits with his mates Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, but will also include John’s most memorable and poignant recordings as a solo artist. The set-list features many songs that John never actually played live.
The show was originally planned as a live event, but the streaming platform allows for a very special pre-concert exclusive presentation where entertainers and celebrities, as well as Beatles notables, will be delivering special birthday messages as an opening to the evening’s ceremonies.
Tickets for this historic 80th birthday gala streaming event are only $19.40 (1940 is the year John was born) through October 1st, and $25 thereafter from bit.ly/RememberLennon2020.
“Remember Lennon: Imagine 80” is presented by Liverpool Productions, the same organisation that premiered a similar event in 2010. They have produced Beatles Conventions and Beatles Fan Expos since 1978, along with the Beatles 50th Anniversary events in New York. The Connecticut-based fan club have also organised the annual “Magical History Tours” to Liverpool and London for Beatles fans since 1983.
REMEMBER LENNON: IMAGINE 80 is a unique extraordinary STREAMING musical experience celebrating the music, the memory, the magic and the LIFE of John Lennon.
