John Lennon - John Lennon's Peace Tower Lit For Norway
John Lennon's Imagine Peace Tower will be lit up in Iceland later this month (Aug11) in honour of the victims of the recent Norway massacre.
The country was plunged into mourning last month (Jul11) when right-wing extremist Anders Breivik killed 77 people with a car bomb in Oslo and a shooting rampage on the island of Utoya.
And Lennon's widow Yoko Ono will pay her respects to the victims by illuminating the Iceland skies with the beam-of-light art installation on Vioey Island, Reykjavik, which she launched last year (10) to mark the late star's birth and the 30th anniversary of his death.
Ono says, "I hope the Imagine Peace Tower will give light to the strong wishes of World Peace from all corners of the planet and give encouragement, inspiration and a sense of solidarity in a world now filled with fear and confusion.
"I hope people of the world will join us live (online) to watch the lighting of Imagine Peace Tower and send their wishes for peace, especially for the people of Norway... let us come together to realise a peaceful world."
The event will take place on Sunday (21Aug11).
