What’s happening across the pond?
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 EDT/ 4pm PST/ Midnight UK. It is presented by our friend and U.S. agent, Charles F. Rosenay!!!, who has been bringing American travelers to Liverpool since 1983.
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.
The evening stars famed Lennon impersonator Scot Arch, of «Beatlemania Now,» and will include not only Lennon’s earliest «Moptops» hits with his mates Paul, George & Ringo, but will also include John’s most memorable and poignant recordings as a solo artist.
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. Some of the special guests delivering messages to fans, and wishing John a happy 80th, include Lulu, Tommy James, Dick Cavett, Billy J. Kramer, Tommy Roe, Mary Wilson (Supremes), Mark Hudson, Fred Seaman, Dan Richter (JoKo Films), Marshall Crenshaw, Laurence Juber, Steve Holley, Phil «Fang» Volk (Raiders), Earl Slick, Gary Von Scyoc (Elephant’s Memory), Don Dannemann (The Cyrkle), Chris O’Dell, Leon Wildes (John’s immigration attorney), Melanie, Ron Dante (Archies), Angie McCartney, Ruth McCartney, Len Garry and so many others.
If you want to know everything about the Beatles, we will tell you about it in our tours in both Spanish and English.
