Yoko Ono will perform her and John Lennon's final album, 1980's Double Fantasy, next month in London, with son Sean Lennon, according to NME. The show, which will feature special guests, takes place on June 23rd at the Royal Festival Hall to close out Ono's nine-day Meltdown Festival, which will also include shows at Queen Elizabeth Hall. Participating performers include Patti Smith, Thurston Moore, Kim Gordon, Iggy Pop, and Savages, among others.

John Lennon's personal assistant, Fred Seaman, was present during Lennon's final songwriting and demo sessions in Long Island and Bermuda prior to his 1980 studio comeback. He told us that Lennon thought long and hard on the material which became his final set of songs: "The official recording started in August of 1980, but the idea started in the spring of 1980 when John and I were in Cold Spring Harbor. And then in June of 1980, when we were in Bermuda. That's when John really started recording the demos and Yoko was recording her own demos. And they were on the phone and he was telling her what he was recording and she was telling him what she was recording."
