john lennon Imagine Peace Tower

What is this “Imagine Peace Tower”? The tower is another one of Yoko Ono’s tribute to his late husband. It is a 20 to 30 meters high tower with a radius of about a meter. It will have the lyrics of John Lennon’s classic song ‘Imagine’ engraved on the walls. This tower will be built on Iceland’s capital city – Reykjavi.

Yoko wanted to have a special place where she can put all the messages and wishes of John’s millions and millions of fans. The illuminated columns of the tower are filled with more than an estimated million wishes, messages and hopes from fans and friends.

The concept of the “Imagine Peace Tower” was first announced last year (2006) by Yoko but the concept for the light tower was first mentioned by Yoko to John in 1965.

The will be lit each year from Oct. 9 to Dec. 8, “so it has the feeling of the shortness of life, but the light is eternal,” Ono said.
