The world's most acclaimed John Lennon tribute artist & band, the show, subtitled 'Imagine The Dream', featuring the songs that Lennon might have performed on the world tour he was planning at the time of his shocking murder in December 1980.
Northerner, Gary Gibson has performed as Lennon around the world for many years, and bears an uncanny resemblance to him both visually and vocally. He has shared concert stages with such names as Elton John and Tom Jones, who famously exclaimed,"I thought I'd seen a bloody ghost!" Gibson's show features Lennon solo material from the Plastic Ono Band through to Double Fantasy, as well as later Beatles classics like Come Together, Revolution and Don't Let Me Down.
This will undoubtedly be the closest and most intimate musical portrait of the ultimate British rock legend, complete with a first class band. Not to be missed!
Gary Gibson was the founder member of 'The Cavern Beatles' back in 1980 along with band members Graham Pollcok, John Ward, and Andrew Swarbrick, playing at venues through out the north.

On the last Pebble Mill the 'Cavern Beatles' performed for George Martin who, along with Victor Spinnetti, talked about the making of 'Hard Day's Night'.
At a racing fraternity party Sir Elton John asked Gary if he could get up and sing with the band. "What shall we sing?" Gary asked. "Let's do that one I did with John (Lennon) at Madison Square Gardens 'I Saw Her Standing There' replied Elton. Afterwards, back stage, Elton commented "I can’t believe it, you look so much like John. You’ve got to be related"!
