The JOHN LENNON SONGBOOK in concert with Band and Mersey String Quartet.
The producers of “Lennon Through a Glass Onion” announce a musical treat for fans of that successful
show, and indeed anyone who loves the genius of the songs written by John Lennon, both
as a Beatle and during his career as a solo artist - a career which spanned more years than his
“The JOHN LENNON SONGBOOK in concert” is a new venture which John Waters says will be an exciting new experience for himself and Stewart…
“We genuinely still love performing these great songs, and have long thought of unchaining them and in a sense liberating them from being part of a theatrical show by simply performing them in a concert. The songs will no longer be abridged as some of them were in “Glass Onion” but performed in full.
“I’m looking forward to playing John Lennon’s songs in their entirety and also to be able to weave
some of our own magic into the genius of the songs using ‘The Mersey Strings Quartet with the
talent of Greg Henson on Percussion and Paul Berton on Acoustic Guitar ”
We will both have the joy of just being ‘us’, and introducing the songs from our own point of view.
We will also be doing a lot of extra songs that were never included in “Glass Onion”. So for all
those people who have said to me: “I loved the show but I did wish you’d done ‘Mind Games’” -
look out, here it comes!”
