LENNON REMEMBERED will take place in John’s birthplace 30 years on from his tragic, early death which shocked the world, and will commemorate what would have been his 70th birthday.  The Memorial Concert, organised by The Cavern Club in association with Chas Cole, of CMP Entertainment, will form the climax of two months of celebrations of John Lennon’s unique contribution to the cultural landscape, not only of the city of his birth, but also his immortal position in global popular music.
{pgomakase}John Lennon’s significance and appeal continues to span the generations, and musicians from every era will congregate on stage to remember, celebrate  and perform unique versions of Lennon’s most famous songs – and, no doubt, one or two forgotten gems alongside them as well.
Performers confirmed to appear will be announced in the weeks to come, as this event unfolds and undoubtedly builds momentum and becomes a highly-charged, long-awaited  tribute to one of the City’s, best loved sons.
John’s half sister, Julia Baird, has whole-heartedly backed the Concert – along with the whole John Lennon Tribute Season.
Julia Baird said “This will be a very emotional evening, not only for our family, but I’m sure it will be a very special night for the other performers on stage and for the audience, as we all unite in our love for John and his wonderful, immortal music.”
Bill Heckle, Director of The Cavern Club said “We have enjoyed many great musical nights in this City over the years, but an evening dedicated to John, attended by those who knew and loved him, as well as those who worked with him, plus the thousands of fans who, purely and simply, have been touched and moved by his music throughout our lives, will really make it into something special.”
A Liverpool and worldwide occasion not to be missed and a celebration and emotional evening of the musical legend himself, LENNON REMEMBERED.
