He added, "Hard Days Night will also be paying tribute to Lennon all day Saturday to mark Lennon's official 70th birthday by playing Lennon music all day inside the hotel. Beatles tribute band, The Mersey Beatles will also be returning to the hotel this Friday for a live concert special to commemorate some of Lennon's most famous hits."
The balloons will be released in the hotel's 'Peace Garden', which was constructed in memory of Lennon.
