Revival69: The Concert That Rocked the World

1h 20m Biography, Documentary, Music 2022

“Revival69: The Concert That Rocked the World”, is the remarkable, behind-the-scenes story of how a little-known music festival came together against all odds.

Young, scrappy concert promoter John Brower puts his life on the line to turn his failing Toronto Rock ‘n’ Roll Revival into a one-day event, later coined in rock mythology as “the second most important event in rock n’ roll history.” And it almost didn’t happen.

The festival united rock’n’roll legends Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Bo Diddley and Gene Vincent, as well as The Doors, Chicago, and Alice Cooper, but it was the 11th hour arrival of John Lennon and the Plastic Ono Band that ignited a truly seminal moment for the 20,000 fans at Toronto’s Varsity Stadium, triggering Lennon’s final decision to leave the Beatles forever.
