John Lennon would have turned 75 in October, and this year on December 6th, in order to honor his remembrance, an all-star lineup of musicians united in Madison Square Garden to pay tribute to the late Beatles icon. A generous cast of artists carried out an impeccable and buoyant show to celebrate Lennon's honor that night. Though John Lennon's birthday was in October, that did not cease the mass media from celebrating the life of the great founding member of the Beatles.
A variety of extremely talented performers such as Sheryl Crow, Chris Stapleton, Steven Tyler, The Roots, Spoon, etc, stole the hearts of the audience that night by performing hits that Lennon originally wrote like "Hey Bulldog", "Mother," "Come Together," and more. You can bet that the theatre was literally drowning in nostalgia and emotional reinforcement.
There wasnt too much notable repartee, aside from host Kevin Bacons introductions and a pre-taped video message from Paul Mccartney and Ringo Starr paying tribute to their late bandmate, I think we can all agree that the music did enough talking.
The show will be broadcast on AMC Saturday December 19 at 9 pm ET/PT.
