Yoko's birthday present - see the Imagine peace tower lit right now on her birthday night




In honor of Yoko Ono's 76th birthday, the Imagine Peace Tower in Iceland is being lit from sunset to dawn Iceland time. She announced this in a blog post from MySpace earlier today. You can see the lit tower at this link. You can leave her birthday wishes on that page. If you've never seen the Tower lit, it's a spectacular sight, even in pictures.

    Is the tower only lit on special occasions?

    Mic C: I suspect given the cost it is only turned on for special reasons.

    Mic C & Steve:
    Further down on the official page it tells when the tower is lit. I learn something new every time I read your column, Steve. Thanks again for putting all this info out there for original fans and new ones too. I really enjoy it!

    Happy birthday, Yoko! The tower is beautiful as always, and the preview track from the new international "Give Peace A Chance" remixes is lovely. We all shine on!
