[Posted by Adam Forrest on Monday, 09/26/16 3:23 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
Celebrate the birthday of John Lennon at "John Lennon: Working Class Hero," a unique performance taking place October 9, at 1:30 pm at the legendary Crest Theatre in Westwood on the day John would have turned 76. Proceeds from the one-time only concert will go to benefit Pancreatic Cancer research.
In the hour-hour the show, journalist Ivor Davis, author of the award-winning book, "The Beatles and Me on Tour," who was the only daily newspaper writer to travel from start to finish on the Beatles first historic l964 tour of North America, will tell the inside stories of those times, and Brooke Halpin, musician and host of the radio show "Come Together with the Beatles," will sing Beatle hits.

In addition, admission includes a screening of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, starring Peter Frampton, The Bee Gees, Aero Smith, Alice Cooper, Earth, Wind and Fire, Billy Preston, Steve Martin, and George Burns.
"I love to tell my Beatles stories-events I witnessed while touring with them," said Davis, "and Brooke sings Beatle songs. "It's a wonderful way to remember those magical days and the genius of John Lennon. We'll have a great time reminiscing. Plus we are raising money to fight pancreatic cancer a terrible disease that claimed the life of my wife Sally and Brooke's father."
In "The Beatles and Me on Tour," Davis recounts in frank and amusing fashion, the rip-roaring adventures of the most legendary band at a critical moment in the history of rock 'n' roll. The book recreates a world long gone but not forgotten, especially for the hundreds of thousands of girls who spent a summer nights years ago screaming for their idols, the Beatles.
Tickets are $15 for students, $20 general seating, and $25 VIP seating. To purchase tickets, visit the Crest Theatre website.
