    Description

    "Live Peace in Toronto 1969" Recorded Here

    John Lennon w/Eric Clapton, plus The Doors, 1969 Toronto Rock & Roll Revival Unused Ticket. Paper ticket for this special event held on September 13, 1969 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. This ticket was printed on lightly polka-dotted paper, probably to dissuade counterfeiting.

    This was a huge, one-day, 12-hour event that was immortalized on record in the form of John Lennon / Plastic Ono Band's Live Peace in Toronto 1969 album. That LP was released on Apple Records three months after the event and reached the Top 10 of Billboard's album chart in early 1970.

    Lennon, with Eric Clapton on guitar, Klaus Voorman on bass and Yoko Ono in tow, was actually a last-minute addition to the festival. The Doors were considered the headliners, and indeed closed the show late in the evening. Other acts appearing included Chicago Transit Authority, Alice Cooper, Junior Walker and the All-Stars, Tony Joe White and Cat Mother and the All-Night Newsboys, plus a strong contingent of rock & roll founding fathers in Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, Bo Diddley and Gene Vincent. The latter five's participation was said to be a primary reason Lennon spontaneously agreed to appear at the festival.

    This $6.00 advance ticket carries the serial number 00232. It measures 5 ¾" x 2 5/8" and is in mint condition. COA from Heritage Auctions.
