Did they ever do a tribute concert for John like they did for George?

If I recall, there was one but I thought it was incredibly lame. I mean, Kevin Spacey singing MIND GAMES!!???

On the other hand, I thought Concert for George was EXCELLENT!

I agree. I LOVED Concert for Goerge, and when i was watching it I started thinking, "Hey, where is John's tribute?!?"

They should do one and title it "Better Late Than Never."

I'm pretty sure there was one not too long after his death......and I think Yoko was behind it too......I know there's been one that is on DVD or something from what I hear...

There was a concert in Liverpool for John's 50th birthday... and I was there!!! It was held at Albert Dock and was absolutely huge! Unfortunately neither Paul nor Ringo attended personally - but they did send personal messages via a large screen!

Yoko and Sean appeared though - they came on stage at the end to tremendous cheers. Yoko was going to make a speach but she broke down in tears as the whole crowd began chanting Give Peace A Chance - it was extremely moving. In the end she had to leave the stage accompanied by Sean.

There was a video of it released a good few years back - I'll post details if anyone wants to track down a copy.

I do remember some kind of tribute a couple of years ago.  There were all sorts of stars singing John's songs.  That may have been the one that Joe is referring to with Kevin Spacey.  I did not watch it though because I hate people singing Beatles/solo covers.

I did put it on for a second and saw some country girl singing "God".  That was enough for me.  I had to throw up after that.

"Here Today" Is actually the title, it's a good song, I like it. He does it for most of his concerts now days I think, along with "Something" for George and it's played with a ukalali.
