Put together by Blurred Vision band frontman
, the enterprising and articulate Sepp Osley, who himself could have been a poster child for War Child UK having escaped war-torn Iran as a young child in the 80s, the ‘Dear John’ concert is not only a celebration of the music, legacy, and 80th birthday of the Beatle legend, but a coming together of fans and artists from different generations and backgrounds

The evening will include performances of Lennon songs by/or tributes from KT Tunstall, Larkin Poe, Peter Gabriel (part of the Dear John video), Richard Curtis CBE, Maxi Jazz of Faithless, Lindsay Ell, PP Arnold, Andy Fairweather Low, John Ilsley of Dire Straits, Graham Gouldman of 10cc, Gowan ( AKA frontman of Styx), Nick Van Eede of Cutting Crew, Blurred Vision with Lyndon J Connah, Mollie Marriott, Laura Jean Anderson, and more to be announced.

A video of the Blurred Video anthem ‘Dear John’ can be seen now on the band's Youtube page, blurredvisionmusic, featuring tributes from Peter Gabriel, Donovan, Fish, Marc Almond, Paul Young , John Otway and many more as well as messages from fans around the globe.


The concert will be streamed online around the world for free but audiences are being encouraged to donate whatever they can to the fundraiser. Donation links are available before, during and after the show for easy access to the fundraising page.
