Revival69: The Concert That Rocked the World
Discover the remarkable, behind-the-scenes story of how a little-known, but life-altering music festival came together—against all odds. Young, scrappy concert promoter John Brower puts his life on the line (literally) to turn his failing Toronto Rock n Roll Revival into a one-day event, later coined in rock mythology as “the second most important event in rock n’ roll history.” And it almost didn't happen. The festival united rock legends and the almost famous, but it was the 11th-hour arrival of John Lennon and the Plastic Ono Band that ignited a truly seminal moment for the 20,000 fans at Toronto’s Varsity Stadium, triggering Lennon's final decision to leave the Beatles forever.
Join director Ron Chapman and special guests for an in-person Q&A after the Saturday, December 17, 7:30 p.m. screening.
