The concert film and music release features a collection of legendary singers and superstars who came together for a once-in-a-lifetime concert event taping in New York City at The Theater At Madison Square Garden to celebrate the songs of music icon John Lennon.

Imagine: John Lennon 75th Birthday Concert features captivating performances, in-depth interviews, and compelling behind-the-scenes action with Aloe Blacc, Eric Church, Sheryl Crow, Brandon Flowers, John Fogerty, Peter Frampton, Juanes, Kris Kristofferson, Pat Monahan, Tom Morello, Willie Nelson, The Roots, Spoon, Chris Stapleton and Steven Tyler.

The CD/LP features 20 tracks with 22 on the DVD. Performances include a range of Lennon classics, such as “Mind Games” (performed by Eric Church), “You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away” (performed by Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson, and Chris Stapleton), an electrified rendition of “Power to the People” (performed by Tom Morello), “Happy Xmas (War Is Over)” (performed by Aloe Blacc, Sheryl Crow and Peter Frampton) just in time for the holidays, and the heart-stirring finale, “All You Need Is Love.”

“John’s art continues to give hope, light and happiness to generations of people everywhere. His belief that each of us can change the world continues to inspire the human race to believe in themselves, and his influence is everlasting in everyone’s hearts as we all share in the possibilities and power of music,” says Yoko Ono.
