Historic Concert – JOHN LENNON APPEARS WITH ELTON JOHN

November 16

On November 16, 1974, John Lennon was at No.1 in the US singles chart with ‘Whatever Gets You Through The Night.’

Elton John played on the session and made a deal with Lennon that if the song reached No.1, Lennon would have to appear on stage live with Elton.

Lennon kept his side of the deal and appeared live with Elton on the glittering stage of Madison Square Garden.

They played three songs together: ‘I Saw Her Standing There,’ ‘Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds’ and ‘Whatever Gets You Through the Night.’

This was the last time John Lennon would ever appear in concert.

Backstage after the concert, Lennon got back with Yoko Ono after an 18 month split.
