Part of Music City Mondays

John Lennon, Yoko Ono, Little Richard, The Doors, Chuck Berry, Alice Cooper, and other legendary musicians performed at the 1969 Toronto Rock and Roll Revival music festival. This behind-the-scenes look at “the second most important event in rock and roll history” culminates in the first public performance of The Plastic Ono Band.

“Whisks audiences back to the days before social media, online ticket sales, and viral buzz. There’s a great madcap energy to be found in the anecdotes about how they spread the word about Lennon and Ono’s participation.” —Pat Mullen, POV Magazine

“Watching REVIVAL 69, you can’t help but compare it to today’s musical landscape and pine for a simpler time when musicians could play with anyone at any time. Public relations teams weren’t a thing then. And brand recognition and rock ’n’ roll had yet to meet.” —Dana Gee, Vancouver Sun
