To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the senseless murder of John Lennon, Imagine the Beatle as he first comes to the ‘big smoke’ with his bandmates – becomes a big part of ‘Swinging London’, – and meets Yoko Ono.
- See where John Lennon lived, partied, and wrote some of the most iconic songs of all time.
- Find out who was the inspiration for Norwegian Wood;
- and the ‘gal with the giggle in her voice‘ that Lennon had an affair with;
- where John and Yoko posed naked for an album cover;
- and where John wrote and recorded Imagine’
This is a live online tour, and that there will be a Q & A session at the end. It is a great opportunity to meet fans from around the world!
