Yoko Ono has revealed plans for a very special one off show in time for her 80th birthday.
Often a divisive figure amongst Beatles fans, the latter period of Yoko Ono's career has seen the Japanese artist gain enormous respect. Continuing to push ahead, her influence on pop culture - and the wider visual arts scene - is now being recognised.
A continual advocate for peace, Yoko Ono has decided to celebrate her 80th birthday with a very special show. The one off date takes place in Berlin on February 17th, and will see the singer joined by the current incarnation of the Plastic Ono Band.
No line up details as yet, but the show at Volksbuhne should rank as something extremely special. The news coincides with the announcement that Yoko Ono is to take a career spanning retrospective to Germany next month.
'HALF-A-WIND SHOW' opens at the Schirn Kuntshalle in Frankfurt on February 15th, before travelling across major museums in Denmark, Austria and Spain in 2013 and 2014.
Other projects slated for 2013 include a massive re-issue scheme, a career-spanning art book 'Infinite Universe At Dawn' and - of course - her stint as the curator of Meltdown at the Southbank Centre.
