John Lennon’s widow Yoko Ono released a video saying that John Lennon was “immensely inspired by Bermuda.” Lennon visited Bermuda in 1980, and later named an album from a freesia flower he saw in the Botanical Gardens – The Double Fantasy.
Yoko Ono said, “I am pleased that John is being honored in the Bermuda Botanical Gardens. It is where he discovered the Double Fantasy freesia flower which became the title of his last album. Know that he loved and was immensely inspired by Bermuda. His spirit is now a part of the beautiful Botanical Gardens where I hope peace and love will grow.”
This summer, Bermuda is paying tribute to John Lennon’s creative genius during the first-ever John Lennon Double Fantasy Bermuda Tribute with two events being organized Tony Brannon.
Masterworks Museum is playing host to the first of these events this evening with the public unveiling of the Graham Foster tribute sculpture, and the opening of the “Imagine the Art of John Lennon” art exhibit.
And then a tribute concert which will be held on September 21st, the International Day of Peace. Local artists will join international reggae singer Maxi Priest for an evening of music to celebrate the life of John Lennon.
