A two-night stand by the Plastic Fauxno All Star Band at MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa this weekend will envision what 1980 shows by John Lennon could have been.
“The Love is the Answer concert reflects where Lennon found himself, after years of self exploration, personal tumult, activism, legal issues with The Beatles, threat of deportation from the U.S., separation from and reuniting with Yoko, the birth of his second son Sean, and his eventual retirement from the spotlight,” according to the band’s online biography. “The ‘70s were ultimately an enlightening decade for him. From interviews in 1980, Lennon was content with his place in the sun, enjoying and accepting of his domesticity, ready to reengage with the world artistically, and enjoying a new lyrically and musically prolific period.”
The band’s show includes a “nostalgic and historically contextual video backdrop,” as well as performances of “Starting Over,” “Whatever Gets You Through The Night,” “Mother,” “Cold Turkey,” “Working Class Hero,” “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Instant Karma,” “Watching the Wheels” and “Imagine.” Songs by the Beatles and more are also included in the performance.
“The world never had the opportunity to see and hear a full-length concert of John Lennon performing songs from his entire solo catalogue,” according to the bio. “Plastic Fauxno Band respectfully and energetically brings that concert to the stage.”
MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa is located at 55 U.S. Highway 50 in Stateline.
