Fenway Converted to Concert Venue for Paul McCartney, Jason Aldean This Week - Tuesday, July 09, 2013

Tim Piper returns to Los Angeles with JUST IMAGINE, an extraordinary rock 'n' roll celebration of the life and music of John Lennon. Backed by rock band Working Class Hero (Greg Piper on bass; Don Butler on guitar, Morley Bartnof on keyboards and Don Poncher on drums), Piper brilliantly embodies the much-loved music icon at the Hayworth Theatre through August 25.

Written and directed by Steve Altman, JUST IMAGINE intertwines John Lennon's songs with the stories behind them to create a unique and electrifying multimedia concert experience. The multimedia show begins with the announcement of his death and goes on to take you through a final performance with John Lennon, revealing his outlook on his life, his music career, as well as his inspiration for songs and his relationships with loved ones.

Fenway Park is preparing for thousands of spectators in the next five days, none of whom are coming to see any home runs. As the Red Sox begin a new series in Seattle tonight, their home plate is currently being converted into a concert venue to host two of Boston's biggest concerts of the summer: Paul McCartney and Jason Aldean.
