Reykjavik Grapevine Airwaves review of Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band show in Iceland

"A Tradition in our family" by Kári Tulinius, Reykjavik Grapevine Airwaves. I did not know what to expect from tonight’s lineup. Essentially it was Plastic Ono Band and various sub-voltrons thereof.

Yoko Ono & Special Guests WE ARE PLASTIC ONO BAND – 2 nights at The Orpheum – **PHOTOS & VIDEO**

Saturday - The night was hot! The whole audience gave a standing ovation to Lady Gaga from the minute she appeared on the stage to when her turn was over. And that is saying a lot. That meant people were standing through the long, long songs - THE SUN IS DOWN and IT'S BEEN VERY HARD. It's a record! At the end of IT'S BEEN VERY HARD, Lady Gaga started to play the piano with her high heel shoes, and I went up on the top of the piano and started jamming lying down. Right away, Lady Gaga climbed up on the piano right next to me, and two of us jammed, in tune, of course. I am sure the audience would never forget this night... You can say that two of us came from one clay.... yoko
