Launched in 1969 with the single “Give Peace a Chance”, Plastic Ono Band is known worldwide for its avant-garde music, film, art and activism. Early ’70s albums by the Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band have proven to be influential and ahead-of-their-time.
40 years later, Yoko has revived the name and spirit of Plastic Ono Band, joined by son and co-producer Sean Lennon along with the creative Japanese musicians Haruomi Hosono,Yuka Honda and Cornelius (Keigo Oyamada, Hirotaka Shimizu and Yuko Araki).

Last year, Yoko was recognized with the prestigious Golden Lion lifetime achievement award at the Venice Biennale, and the Mojo Magazine Lifetime Achievement Award.
On Tuesday, February 16, 2010, Yoko will perform a very special concert featuring the “new” Plastic Ono Band, along with original members Eric Clapton and Klaus Voorman, plus an intriguing cast of special guests, friends & accomplices. It promises to be a unique, unpredictable and unforgettable evening.
