Calgary International Film Festival presents a film screening of Revival 69: The Concert that Rocked the World at Studio Bell.
About Revival 69: The Concert that Rocked the WorldCoined "the second most important event in rock & roll history," the Toronto Rock & Roll Revival was a one-day event held at Toronto's Varsity Stadium. With a lineup that included Little Richard, The Doors and Alice Cooper, Revival was expected to be a can't-miss event. But, when ticket sales unexpectedly fizzled, resulting in a near cancellation, promoter John Brower threw out a Hail Mary. At the 11th hour, he invited John Lennon to perform. Astonishingly, he said yes.
