• Yoko Ono plans John Lennon celebration in Iceland

    2010-08-30

    A trip to Iceland can make for a memorable vacation, but fans of The Beatles have an extra reason to go, as John Lennon's widow, Yoko Ono, is planning events to commemorate the singer-songwriter on the small island of Vioey.

    According to the Associated Press, Ono is planning several events to recognize what would have been Lennon's 70th birthday. Vioey, a tiny island off the coast of the capital of Reykjavik, was chosen because it is the location of the "Imagine Peace" tower, a white stone monument that Ono dedicated to Lennon in 2007. At night, the monument shoots a tower of light into the sky, which has been cited for its beauty and can even break through the cloud cover.

    On October 9th, Ono will light the tower herself and perform a moonlight concert with the Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band following the ceremony. Other events will be announced soon. It is not known if any special guests were invited, but the original dedication of the tower saw Ringo Star, Sean Lennon and Dhani Harrison come together for the ceremony.

    Ono will also present the awards from the Lennon-Ono Grant for Peace, created after the singer's death in order to promote his ideals for world unity.
