Slideshow: 2012 John Lennon Tribute Concert

September 24, 2012

Friday, September 21 was a night to remember, as Tony Brannon put on what many have called one of the best productions of local entertainment ever held in Bermuda.

Dozens of artists graced the stage, with two bands taking half the show each in support of almost four hours of music in a tribute to the late John Lennon who after many years of unable to write any new material broke his writer’s block during a trip to Bermuda.

Lennon came to Bermuda in June 1980 on a yacht for an extended vacation. The experience sparked his musical genius breaking a 5-year writer’s block, and the resulting comeback album was entitled Double Fantasy, named for a flower he had seen in the Bermuda Botanical Gardens.

    Excellent photos Mr.Manderson!

  2. Imagine an entire world living in peace… John saw the beauty and inherent good in humanity. I tried to do his legacy justice and channel his world-embracing and loving energy this week with a tribute portrait inspired by his music and his passion for changing the world. You can see this new work of art in memoriam on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/12/john-lennon-just-imagine.html along with some pictures showing how I created it. See John holding the Universe in his hand and spreading his message. When you stop by, let me know how his words and music have affected your life and creativity!
