    John Lennon

    When: November 28, 1974 Where: Madison Square Garden

    John Lennon's last live performance was a pretty legendary affair, as Lennon was the surprise guest at Elton John's Madison Square Garden perofrmance, joining the flamboyant Englishman for renditions of "Whatever Gets You Thru The Night," "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds," and "I Saw Her Standing There." Lennon had recorded "Whatever Gets You Thru The Night" with Elton John and, doubtful of its commercial vaiblity, said that if it reached number one he'd play with Elton at the Madison Square Garden show. It duly did, and Lennon kept his word, leaving us with a glorious last 15 minutes of live music from the legendary Beatle. Watch some video footage up top, and enjoy the full audio below.
