Lennon Remembered to be "historic and relevant tribute"
Date Posted: 18/11/10
John Lennon's life and career will be celebrated in a "historic and relevant tribute", according to the late Beatles member's half-sister.
Julie Baird told ClickLiverpool.com that Lennon would be "very proud" that the event, which takes place at Liverpool's Echo Arena on Thursday December 9th, will bring together so many of his friends and colleagues.
Those booking Liverpool hotels for the event will be able to witness special guests, including The Quarrymen, Tony Sheridan, Bill Harry, Alan White and Mark McGann.
"I'm delighted that 'Lennon Remembered' is such an historic and relevant tribute to my brother's life and career. It's wonderful that the proceeds for such a celebration can also give a little back to the city that he loved," added Ms Baird.
Bill Heckle, co-event organiser, stated that anyone who loves the music of John Lennon and The Beatles should not miss this night.
"You will be witnessing history with contributions from those who helped John create it," he continued.
