John Lennon & The Plastic Ono Band: Live in Toronto '69
John Lennon & The Plastic Ono Band Live In Toronto â69 is a rare look at one of the worldâs most influential popular artists at a pivotal moment in his career. Filmed on the eve of the release of the Abbey Road LP â the last Beatles album to be recorded â this is the only performance ever caught on film of John Lennon & the Plastic Ono Band. It had been three years since Lennon had performed onstage with The Beatles. Seemingly on a whim, John and wife Yoko Ono hopped on a plane with guitarist Eric Clapton, bassist Klaus Voormann and drummer Alan White to travel to the Toronto Rock âNâ Roll Revival festival showcasing some of Lennonâs early musical heroes â among them Bo Diddley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry and Little Richard. As it turned out, Lennon and the newly formed Plastic Ono Band played an equally significant role that night in the history of rock ânâ roll, as it is widely believed this concert foreshadowed the official end of The Beatles. Captured by Academy AwardÂ®ânominated director D.A. Pennebaker (The War Room, Donât Look Back, Monterey Pop), this concert film serves as one of the great historical documents in the career and life of John Lennon.
