In honor of what would have been John Lennon’s 75th birthday, Blackbird Presents and AMC brings you Imagine: John Lennon 75th Birthday Concert, an all-star concert event celebrating the music and message of the legendary music icon. The one-night-only concert event taping was held at the Theater at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, December 5th, and aired exclusively on AMC on Saturday, December 19th at 9:00pm ET/PT.
Along with a stellar lineup, the show included very special video appearances by the remaining members of The Beatles, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr. Golden Globe® and Screen Actors Guild® Award-winner Kevin Bacon was the special guest host of this star-filled event.
“It’s beautiful to see so many wonderful and talented musicians come together for this special show to celebrate John’s birthday,” said Yoko Ono. “John’s art continues to give hope, light and happiness to generations of people everywhere. His belief that each of us can change the world continues to inspire the human race to believe in themselves, and his influence is everlasting in everyone’s hearts as we all share in the possibilities and power of music.”
A portion of proceeds from the concert have been donated to the Robin Hood Foundation.For more information, please visit www.robinhood.org.
