SLOW TRAVEL BERLIN
Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band, Volksbühne, 8pm
Yoko Ono may have first risen to fame as the wife of Beatles member John Lennon, but in the years since, has established herself musically in her own right. Now, more than 40 years after the release of her first solo album, the musical and visual artist will celebrate her 80th birthday here in Berlin.
The performance will include son Sean Ono Lennon appearing alongside her. Sean, a solo artist, joined her musical ranks with the 2009 release of the acclaimed Between My Head and the Sky, and remains the band leader and producer of the group.
More than a musical performance, the night will also celebrate Ono’s achievements over the past six decades as an artist, filmmaker, feminist, activist, and philanthropist. Natalye Childress
