John Waters channels John Lennon in this nostalgic and sell-out show

Twenty years ago, John Waters and Stewart D’Arrietta took to the stage for an intimate two-man show called 'Looking Through a Glass Onion'. The debut performance was a success, and their one week run was extended into a sell-out six week season.

Two tours were done with a full band, but now, in 2012, the show is being revived. Stripped back to it's original idea, 'Looking Through a Glass Onion' will tour Australia one more time before heading to the U.S. Second only to Cold Chisel in ticket sales in recent years, this unique and interesting show explores the attitude and honesty of John Lennon. Not impersonating him, but rather showing what he was all about, his ideas, his music and his enduring legacy for peace in the world.

A nostalgic look back for old fans or an introduction to the incredible music of the Beatles and John Lennon for new fans, 'Looking Through a Glass Onion' is a show for all ages.

A total of 31 songs are performed including: 'Strawberry Fields Forever', 'Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds' and 'Imagine'. This show is expected to sell out very fast so get your tickets now.

Concessions and group discounts available.
