JOHN LENNON ONE TO ONE CONCERT
1972 TAMBOURINE

$375.00
JOHN LENNON ONE TO ONE CONCERT TAMBOURINE. Early in August 1972, John Lennon had the idea to perform a live benefit for the pupils of Willowbrook School in New York City, a state-run institute for children with mental disabilities. Following three days of rehearsals, two concerts took place on this day at Madison Square Garden in Manhattan, New York City. They were the last full-scale performances given by Lennon in public. Lennon had seen Geraldo Rivera's report for ABC TV on the physical and sexual abuse of the children and the poor facilities at the Staten Island school. He contacted Rivera and suggested they organise a benefit concert. Lennon enlisted the band Elephant's Memory, with whom he had recently recorded the Some Time In New York City album, and rehearsals took place on 18, 20 and 22 August. Prior to the concerts, Lennon bought $59,000 worth of tickets and gave them away to fundraising volunteers, as he worried that not enough money was being generated. Both shows were sell-outs, however, and the day raised more than $1.5 million for Willowbrook. Proceeds from the tickets, which cost $5, $7.50 and $10, were intended to establish smaller residential facilities in the community for mentally-disabled people. Initially just one concert had been planned, but an afternoon performance was added after sales for the evening show exceeded expectations. Lennon was, like many Americans, scandalised by the conditions at Willowbrook. He likely also saw it as a chance to rehabilitate his public image, in the light of poor sales of Some Time In New York City and the Nixon administration's ongoing attempts to deport him. The success of George Harrison's Concert For Bangladesh the previous year may well have influenced his decision to get involved. The approximately 6.25" diameter (measurement does not include cymbals) and 1.25" deep tin tambourine was handed out to the audience as souvenirs. One was also used by John Lennon on stage. The tambourine was an advertising piece for a group of NYC night clubs popular in the 1970's. Friday's; Thursday's 24; Wednesday's; Tuesday's (original club building still on 17th St.); Monday's. Inside the tambourine: "What New York needs is a 4 day week", and the locations of four clubs. The tambourine is in used, but excellent condition.

JOHN LENNON

.999 PURE COPPER LIMITED EDITION COIN

YOU SAY YOU WANT A REVOLUTION? PRESENTATION DISPLAY WITH STAND


$12.95 + Shipping
A 39mm, .999 pure copper coin mounted in a 2 3/8 inch x 3 1/4 inch presentation case with colorful, psychedelic "You say you want a revolution?" banner. This comes with a small, clear plastic display stand.


You will receive this special coin 39mm, 1 oz. .999 pure copper “DisOBEY” John Lennon coin that was released in 2017, from the Silver Shield, Golden State Mint. It was struck from 10/23/2017 to 10/30/2017, just one week, with mintage of only 2,892. This coin celebrates the life of John Lennon and his drive to awaken society to search for world peace and an end to war. John Lennon could have easily spent his life in silent luxury, given his legendary status as a solo artist and member of the Beatles, but he didn't. He spent much of his life promoting peace. The US Government saw this as a threat and applied legal and illegal pressure on Lennon to get him to stop, but that only energized the man from Liverpool and his wife, Yoko Ono. The use of slogans, billboards, print advertisements, and songs shouted out "Give Peace A Chance" and "War is Over, If You Want It" challenging the status quo and the consciousness of millions to see that all power started and stopped with them, another theme of John’s “Power To The People.”
