John Lennon and his Plastic Ono Band:
Toronto Rock'n'Roll Revival Concert

Information: (From http://www.norwegianwood.org)
Musicians: John Lennon, Eric Clapton, Klaus Voormann, Yoko Ono, Alan White

Code:
Rock promoter John Brower telephoned John and Yoko the day before to invite them to attend the Toronto Rock'n'Roll Revival concert the next day to hear Little Richard, Chuck Berry and Jerry Lee Lewis, offering eight first-class tickets for them and six friends. John immediately agreed provided he and his band could play live. The astonished promoter accepted at once and, since John had no band - The Beatles had not played live in three years - he had to form one quick. He summoned together Eric Clapton, Klaus Voormann and session drummer Alan White. Mal Evans was informed that he was handling the gear. Brower dealt with visas and immigration, still unable to believe that he had attracted a Beatle to his festival. John woke up the next day and wanted to back out of the Toronto concert but Clapton said he was keen to play. John just made the plane and during the flight he made a half-hearted attempt to rehearse a few songs with The Plastic Ono Band, as he dubbed them. Meanwhile the Canadian radio stations were going wild and there were several hundred fans waiting at the airport, reminiscent of the old days. They hastily rehearsed a few songs and before going on stage at the Varsity Stadium of Toronto University, John was so nervous he threw up. The Plastic Ono Band stuck to classics: "Blue Suede Shoes", "Money", "Dizzy Miss Lizzy", "Yer Blues", "Cold Turkey" and "Give Peace A Chance". Released on the album John Lennon & The Plastic Ono Band: Live Peace in Toronto 1969. The concert was also filmed by director D.A. Pennebaker and released on home video in the 1980's as Sweet Toronto.

Setlist:
01 Blue Suede Shoes
02 Money
03 Dizzy Miss Lizzy
04 Yer Blues
05 Cold Turkey
06 Give Peace A Chance
07 Don't Worry Kyoky (Mummys Only Looking For Her Hand In The Snow)
08 John John (Let's Hope For Peace)
