Had he lived, John Lennon would have turned 77 this Monday, October 9, and in honor of the late Beatles legend’s birthday, a special concert featuring a variety of musicians will be held on Saturday, October 7, at the Smith Opera House in Geneva, New York.
The show, dubbed Lennon 77, will include performances by one-time Lennon session guitarist Earl Slick, founding Animals guitarist Hilton Valentine and one-time Ringo Starr producer Mark Hudson.
The lineup also features a number of local musical acts, including the Fab Four tribute band Magical Mystery Tour. In addition to performances of songs from The Beatles and Lennon’s solo career, the concert will feature stories and recollections about the rock icon by some of the participating musicians.
Tickets for Lennon 77 can be purchased at TheSmith.org, while a limited amount of VIP packages are also available that offer preferred seating, and a pre-show meet-and-greet event at Geneva’s Linden Social Club. The Linden Social Club also will host an after-show event open to all ticket holders.
