Wow.  This is QUITE a find!  Wanna see video of [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]John Lennon[/lastfm]‘s FINAL live performance?  It stemmed from a 1974 bet between [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Elton John[/lastfm] & Lennon that if “Whatever Gets You Thru the Night” went to #1, John would join Elton on stage at his Thanksgiving show at Madison Square Garden.  Lennon lost the bet, and the rest is history.

The show was recorded and parts of it released, but film of that historic night has never surfaced – until now. Shot from the orchestra, the brief, silent clip is in color and shows Elton introducing Lennon. After the show, Lennon met his estranged wife [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Yoko Ono[/lastfm] backstage, resulting in their reunion.  This is history, folks!
