John Lennon's Remembrance Concert Is Planned in His Hometown


The concert will feature The Beatles legend's first band, The Quarrymen, John Lennon's old pal Tony Sheridan, and former Plastic Ono Band drummer Alan White.

A huge concert to mark the 30th anniversary of John Lennon's death is to be held in his hometown of Liverpool, England this week. Artists including The Beatles legend's first band, The Quarrymen, his old pal Tony Sheridan, and former Plastic Ono Band drummer Alan White will all take part in the poignant show.

It will also feature a special preview of The Beatles Sessions, a new musical based around the band's recordings at London's Abbey Road studios, and a performance of the John Lennon - In My Life stage show. The concert will be opened by The Quarrymen, which was reformed by its surviving members in 1997.

Quarrymen banjo player Rod Davis tells WENN, "We are opening the show. It's in chronological order so we are kicking it off with all the original stuff we used to play with John in '56 and '57 - the songs which inspired John's love of rock 'n' roll."

The Lennon Remembered concert will be held at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on Thursday, December 9. Lennon was shot dead outside his home in New York on the evening of December 8, 1980 - the early hours of the morning on 9 December U.K. time.
