Earlier this year, Yoko Ono
revived the Plastic Ono Band
for a special engagement in New York that saw the likes of Eric Clapton
, Paul Simon
, Bette Midler
and an impressive list of musicians all join in on the action.
However, when Ono brought the new version of her Plastic Ono Band - featuring musical director Sean Lennon
- to the Bay Area for a one-off gig shortly thereafter, it was a scaled-down affair that was stripped of the special guests.
But now the West Coast will get its due: Ono will bring her "We Are Plastic Ono Band
" show to Los Angeles for the first two nights of October, and she's bringing out a virtual parade of marquee guests for the affair. They include: Lady Gaga
, Iggy Pop
, Perry Farrell
, the RZA
, Wilco's Nels Cline
, and both Kim Gordon
and Thurston Moore
of Sonic Youth.
The shows will take place at the Orpheum Theater in L.A. For full details visit Ono's Imagine Peace website
Tickets for both dates are currently on sale and prizes range from $60.00 $150.00. Click here
