John Lennon – Imagine All The People Living Life In Peace
SoundTracks Of A Generation is proud to present a one night only experience—the songs and the life of John Lennon in a chronological soundscape.
Jay Goeppner, arguably one of the best Lennonesque singers on the planet, assumes the role of John himself. Jay has just returned from a 15th trip to perform at the famed Cavern Club in Liverpool, England, where his voice & performance are highlights of the Beatles festival each & every year.
This 100-minute retrospective begins in 1966, when the Beatles made the momentous decision to stop touring & concentrate solely on music composed in the studio. That was when the seeds to Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band were sown. Songs culled from that album as well as Rubber Soul, Revolver, The White Album, Abbey Road and the rooftop concert for Let It Be as the Beatles’ final performance will be faithfully reproduced.
The second half of the show will deal with John Lennon’s solo career from The Plastic Ono Band, to his signature album Imagine, to Sometime In New York City, Mind Games, Walls & Bridges and Rock & Roll. The show concludes with selections from John & Yoko’s final recording, Double Fantasy, released just prior to his death on December 8, 1980, forty-two years to the day before this show at The Des Plaines Theatre.
Jay Goeppner and his crack SoundTracks band will intertwine these songs with multimedia images to create the monumental musical & emotional impact that John Lennon brought to the world. This show is a creation borne out of love.
