Former Beatle John Lennon's widow, Yoko Ono, was joined by a former Beatle as she unveiled a light tower in Iceland October 9th.

Ringo Starr and Lennon's son, Sean, helped to launch the 'Imagine Peace Tower' in Videy Island, near Reykjavik, on what would have been his 67th Birthday.

George Harrison's widow, Olivia, was also at the unveiling - which saw a choir sing the words to Lennon's, 'Imagine,' during the ceremony.

The monument will now be lit ever year between Lennon's birthday and the anniversary of his death on December 8th, reports the BBC.

Speaking at the unveiling Starr said: "We're all here for Johnny's birthday and the big light, I love the light."

Ono - who designed the tower forty yeas ago - said that she considered herself very fortunate to see the dream my husband and I dreamt together become reality."
