Cyndi Lauper
and Patti Smith will headline a tribute concert for John Lennon on his birthday on October 9. He would be turning 70 years old!

We recently mentioned a tribute concert in the works by Yoko Ono. We're not exactly sure about the relationship, if any, between this tribute concert and Yoko's, but we say the more the merrier! John Lennon's life deserves to be celebrated!

A couple of major events have been set for Lauper/Smith's concert date, including…

-A movie tribute to Lennon at Filmfest Hamburg

-Re-release of 8 solo albums by Lennon, digitally remastered by Yoko Ono (you get some points for that one, Yoko!)

In November, the celebrations will continue with a one-off concert at the Beacon Theatre’s stage, featuring performances by Jackson Browne, Shelby Lynne, & of course Lauper and Smith.

All proceeds from the concert will go the Playing for Change Foundation, which is a group that advocates peace through music, which we think is a WONDERFUL cause!

Will U be celebrating John Lennon’s 70th birthday?

    No, I won't be celebrating. And probably neither will the son he all but abandoned to be with Yoko and THEIR son. The guy wrote great songs, but he was a deadbeat dad and a real a*hole.
