Yoko Ono is planning to throw a two day concert in Los Angeles for her late husband, John Lennon.
According to Spin, October 1st will feature performances by Iggy Pop, Nels Cline and Mike Watt. October 2nd will host sets by Lady Gaga, along with Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth. And finally, both nights will feature “RZA, Perry Farrell, Carrie “Princess Leia” Fisher, actor Vincent Gallo, Paul Simon’s son Harper, and more.”
“Hand-picked artists will join the band onstage, much like the We Are Plastic Ono Band show in Brooklyn this past February, where guest stars included Eric Clapton, Paul Simon, and Scissor Sisters…
“Fans can expect something similar to the Brooklyn show, where the band played selections from Plastic Ono Band’s catalogue, including an all-star jam finale of 1969’s “Give Peace a Chance.” The set also featured newer material culled from Ono’s surprising 2009 album, Between My Head and the Sky.
“Tickets are already onsale for the event via Ticketmaster.”
