The 40th Annual John Lennon Tribute, featuring previously unseen and newly recorded performances from Jackson Browne, Patti Smith, Natalie Merchant, Taj Mahal, Rosanne Cash, Bettye LaVette and more, can be viewed online beginning on Lennon’s birthday, Oct. 9 at 7 p.m. ET.
The 40th Annual John Lennon Tribute will be shown through Oct. 12 at Midnight and benefits the Theatre Within’s Real Love Fund. The program will include unreleased performances from previous Tributes, plus new performances of Lennon and, of course, Beatles classics.
Lennon’s widow, Yoko Ono, said in a statement on the Theatre Within’s website: “For 40 years, Theatre Within has remembered John with its heartfelt annual tribute, while having a powerful positive impact with its John Lennon Real Love Project music program for those by impacted cancer. What a wonderful way to honor John and his highest values!”
