Fifty Years of Imagine – Russell Morris, Steve Kilbey, Jack Jones, Steve Balbi, Robyn Loau, State Theatre, Sydney 30th April 2022
In 1971 John Lennon released the classic album Imagine. Imagine arguably was the greatest song of John Lennon’s solo career.
During the January 1969 sessions for the Let It Be album, Lennon tinkered with the now-familiar chords, as Ringo Starr drummed along. It was just one of the 400 or so songs, jams and fragments played during the infamously fractured recording sessions, The song became the cornerstone of one of the most legendary and most loved albums of all time that featured classic after classic “Crippled Inside”, “Jealous Guy”, “Oh Yoko” and many more.
Now to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Imagine Empire Touring have assembled a stellar line-up of talent to bring alive the John Lennon classic in its entirety along with a set of Lennon classics including “Woman”, “Mind Games”, “Instant Karma”, “Give Peace a Chance”, “Beautiful Boy”, “Power to the People” and maybe even a surprise Lennon penned Beatles classic or two.
