Ono, Clapton And Midler Join Forces For One-off Show
YOKO ONO was joined by a star-studded line-up including ERIC CLAPTON, BETTE MIDLER and the SCISSOR SISTERS on Tuesday night (16Feb10) to perform the first PLASTIC ONO BAND show in 40 years.
Clapton joined bassist Klaus Voorman and drummer Jim Keltner onstage at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York. Both Voorman and Keltner are members of the original line-up that recorded John Lennon's anthem Give Peace a Chance in 1969.
Meanwhile, Lennon and Ono's son Sean, Paul Simon and his son Harper, Martha Wainwright, Sonic Youth and Mark Ronson also took part in the concert.
Midler sang a rendition of track Yes, I'm Your Angel, which One wrote for Lennon when he grew anxious about turning 40. The Beatles legend was shot dead two months after his 40th birthday in 1980.
