DONOVAN PREPS JOHN AND BEATLES COVERS FOR TRIBUTE CONCERT

Donovan will perform an extended set comprising John and Beatles covers, as well as his own music, after receiving the John Lennon Real Love Award at the Theatre Within's 36th Annual John Lennon Tribute.

The concert will take place December 2nd at Symphony Space in New York City, and additional performers will be announced soon. 

Donovan shares a long history with the Beatles and John, most notably traveling with the group to India in 1968 to visit the ashram of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Along with studying Transcendental Meditation during the trip, Donovan taught Lennon proper acoustic guitar finger-picking technique.


"I am delighted to be honored with this year's John Lennon Real Love Award," Donovan said. "And I am amazed to say that John has written a song through me inspired by our time together in India, which I will sing at the Tribute with special guests."
Tickets for the concert will go on sale September 23rd at 1 p.m. ET via the Lennon Tribute website. A limited number of VIP packages will also be available.
