In this podcast exclusive, movie director Ron Chapman and concert promoter John Brower sat down with hosts Gregg Tilston and Karim Kanji to talk about what Rolling Stone magazine called “the second most important event in rock & roll history”.REVIVAL69: The Concert that Rocked the World, tells the incredible behind-the-scenes, story of how, against all odds, a life-changing concert came together. A story of passion and perseverance, this never-before documented story reveals a series of colourful characters, murky deals and broken promises, culminating in John Brower, a young renegade promoter, putting his life on the line (literally) in order to achieve his goal. With dismal ticket sales, the concert was almost cancelled. But Brower took a one-in-a-million chance and invited John Lennon, who said yes, propelling the concert into a massively successful event. Included in the stellar lineup were Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Bo Diddley, Gene Vincent, The Doors, Alice Cooper, and John Lennon with the Plastic Ono Band - his first appearance without the Beatles, that included Yoko Ono, Eric Clapton, Klaus Voormann and Alan White.Watch the official trailer forREVIVAL69: The Concert that Rocked the World Official Trailer here:
