On June 26, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono Lennon, Olivia Harrison and Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberté? will all take part in a special dedication ceremony in honor of John Lennon and George Harrison.

In May 2006 during rehearsals for LOVE, Paul McCartney and Guy Laliberté? discussed how best to recognize John Lennon’s and George Harrison’s contributions to the show. Subsequently, Cirque du Soleil designers created two plaques that will be unveiled on June 26 and then permanently displayed in the LOVE Theatre lobby at The Mirage.

This event celebrates the one-year anniversary of LOVE and coincides with the 40th anniversary of the Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album. Following the ceremony, Larry King will interview Paul, Ringo, Yoko, Olivia and Guy for his one hour broadcast from The Beatles REVOLUTION Lounge at The Mirage in Las Vegas. Larry King Live airs on CNN at 9pm ET, 6pm PT. The distinguished guests will then attend a special one year anniversary performance of LOVE.

In the past year, LOVE has played to sold-out audiences, some of whom have discovered The Beatles music and their message of love for the first time. Celebrity guests such as George Clooney, Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes, Nicole Kidman & Keith Urban, Tom Hanks & Rita Wilson have all seen LOVE and raved about their experience.

LOVE celebrates the musical legacy of The Beatles and is presented exclusively at The Mirage in Las Vegas. The project was born out of a personal friendship and mutual admiration between George Harrison and Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberté?.
