Back by popular demand John Waters and Stewart D’Arrietta are going back to basics with their two-man concert, Looking Through A Glass Onion. Waters says the concert shows there is more than meets the eye when it comes to the ins and outs of John Lennon and the Beatles.
“Lennon had a tragic existence because he never dealt with his childhood traumas of being abandoned and that anger in him comes out a lot – there was repressed violence in the man and what I admire most is he knew that and worked on himself at being peaceful,” Waters says. “He became a better person because of it and what I respect most is he put his money where his mouth was.” Waters says the show started as a two-man show in 1992 on a small stage at the Tilbury Hotel in Sydney’s Woolloomooloo. “We’ve gone back to an unplugged, two-man format with an acoustic piano, guitar and stomp box,” he says. “We sound like a band, but it’s completely organic with beautiful 1960s vocal effects and dramatic lighting.”
