Yoko Ono Brings Birthday Bash to Berlin

Posted: Mar. 6th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Yoko Ono has had her share of fans and detractors over the years, but it's hard to discredit her staying power in a world that moves away from the idols and celebrities of yonder and with a celebration of her birthday in Berlin, she's still one to make headlines. Famous for her involvement with the beatles, but more relevantly for her artistic career, Ono's 80th was met with a sold-out Plastic Ono Band concert, led by her very own son.

Yoko Ono celebrated her 80th birthday with a sold-out Plastic Ono Band concert at the Volksbühne in Berlin last Saturday. The group was led by Ono’s son, Sean Lennon, and featured Wilco’s Nels Cline, among others. There were several special guests who joined the band on stage at the birthday show, including Michael Stipe, Robyn Hitchcock and Rufus & Martha Wainwright. The musicians all sang “Happy Birthday” to Ono in English and German, and the show closed with the John Lennon classic, “Give Peace a Chance.”
