Yeah, I think it's a great version as well.

I remember going to a John Lennon tribute concert which was held at the Pier Head in Liverpool (it was 1990 I think) and they played this video during the concert (presumably because Ringo couldn't/wouldn't turn up in person).
Was the song done especially for that tribute concert?

Paul sent a video too - he did a medley of Love Me Do and PS I Love You.

I don't know, but I do know that it was a tribute to John Lennon. I didn't know about that concert.

I don't know, but I do know that it was a tribute to John Lennon. I didn't know about that concert.

It was May 1990. Here's the acts that performed live .......

Al Green, Cyndi Lauper, Dave Edmunds, Joe Cocker, Hall & Oates, Terence Trent D'Arby, Kylie Minogue, Lou Reed, Wet Wet Wet, The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Deacon Blue, Natalie Cole, Lou Gramm, Justin Hayward & John Lodge (Moody Blues), Lenny Kravitz, Roberta Flack,  Randy Travis, The Christians, Natalie Cole, and finally Yoko & Sean singing Give Peace a Chance with all the acts back on stage to join in.

I think Christopher Reeve was the presenter.

There were special video performances sent in by Paul, Ringo/Tom Petty/etc, Dave Stewart/Roger McGuinn, and Ray Charles
