We Are Plastic Ono Band Dress Rehearsal

by Dick Mac

Yoko Ono and Sean Lennon have formed a new Plastic Ono Band for shows in Brooklyn and Oakland. Tickets were in such high demand that last night's dress rehearsal was made an open event and tickets were sold. I sat third row center, and was treated to performances by the new Plastic Ono Band, Mark Ronson, Scissor Sisters, Sonic Youth, members of the original Plastic Ono Band, Harper Simon, and a "Give Peace A Chance" finale.

At tonight's show, which coincides with Yoko's seventy-seventh birthday, they will be joined by Eric Clapton, Bette Midler, Paul Simon, Martha Wainwright, the rest of the Scissor Sisters, and a cast of thousands.

Sean Lennon looks remarkably like his dad.

Although it's a crappy shot taken with a telephone, I share this picture with you:

There are some tickets left.
