Audio: John Lennon Bermuda Tributes Previews

April 18, 2012

Bermuda will pay tribute to John Lennon’s creative genius during the first-ever John Lennon Double Fantasy Bermuda Tribute with two events on Thursday, June 21, 2012 and Friday, September 21, 2012.

In June 1980, John Lennon sailed to Bermuda on a yacht for an extended vacation. The experience sparked his musical genius and the resulting comeback album was entitled Double Fantasy, named for a flower he had seen in the Bermuda Botanical Gardens.

On Thursday, June 21, 2012 Bermuda is honouring this great music legend at the Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art, located on the grounds of Bermuda’s Botanical Gardens with the unveiling of a memorial sculpture, an art exhibit and the grand opening of the “Double Fantasy Labyrinth.”

On Friday, September 21, 2012 Bermuda artists and artists from around the world will honour John Lennon with a tribute concert held at the Botanical Gardens Show Ring. The evening will also include the release of the “Bermuda John Lennon Tribute” CD and the launch of the book “Bermuda Fantasy – John Lennon’s Island Story”.

Guest artists for the tribute concert include: Heather Nova, Maxi Priest, Biggie Irie, Judie Tzuke, Roy Young, Chewstick, Rachel Brown, Joy Barnum, Paul Muggleton, Bailey & Tallula Tzuke, Robert “Sai” Emery, Christina Frith, Jonathan Frith, Bailey Outerbridge, Steve Easton, Michael Cacy and more.
