Ono to perform in Tokyo
Yoko Ono is to perform at a charity concert in memory of her late husband, John Lennon, on December 8th.
John Lennon Super Live will take place at Nippon Budokan in Tokyo and be a celebration of peace and human rights.
At a public appearance to promote the show, Ono, who is now 75, distributed pieces of a broken clay pot, asking recipients to bring them back in ten years time so they can be reassembled.
She likened the broken pot to the sad state of world affairs and invited people back to the Imagine Studio in Yurakucho on December 2nd 2018 to put the pot back together.
Lennon and Ono first met at the Indica Gallery in London in 1966. The couple married three years later in Gibraltar.
The Beatles played their first gig in Japan at the Nippon Budokan, which was built in 1964 to host the judo competition in the summer Olympics that year.
