John Lennon remembered by the Cavern in Liverpool

Katie Hickox reports for Beatles News from Liverpool:

John Lennon's life and music were remembered last night in a concert at Liverpool's Echo Arena, the final event for the John Lennon Tribute Season that kicked off with celebrations for his 70th birthday. Master of Ceremonies Jon Keats opened the evening with the music being performed by a chorus from John's Dovedale school.

John's first group the Quarryman performed, followed by the Cavern Club's own The Shakers, who then backed rocker Tony Sheridan for a few songs. Tony had travelled all the way from Hamburg to Liverpool. Then Beatles insider Tony Bramwell took to the stage after Sheridan and spoke a few minutes about his time spent with John.

The audience was given a special sneak preview of "The Sessions" in which the actual recording sessions under Geoff Emerick's direction are recreated for a live performance. This means that there can be as many as 3 or 4 John Lennons singing at once instead of laying down multiple tracks to get that special harmony.

Actor Mark McGann brought the house down with his John Lennon performance and was joined by special guests Alan White, the original drummer for John's Plastic Ono Band, and former Badfinger members Joey Molland. For the encore, the audience sang along with the performers "Give Peace a Chance."

Many thanks to Cavern Club for putting on this great concert.
