On what would have been John Lennon’s 70th birthday, Lady Gaga will be joining a list of stars set to perform at a tribute concert.
According to Yoko Ono‘s website, We are Plastic Ono Band shows will be held at the Orpheum Theater in L.A. on Oct. 1 and 2. Performances in tribute of of the ex-Beatle will include John’s widow Ono, his youngest son, Sean Lennon, Jane’s Addiction singer Perry Farrell, Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA, experimental solo artist Tune-Yards, punk icon Iggy Pop and Lady Gaga.
Gaga is not a secret Lennon fan as she recently played his famous white piano —which some fans weren’t too happy about – and performed his song “Imagine” at the Human Rights Campaign in Washington, D.C. in October.
In addition to the tribute shows, EMI will release new versions of Lennon’s solo albums on Oct. 5 and previously unreleased home recordings.
