There's no word yet if she's going to take a seat at the signature [article id="1643521"]white piano again, but Lady Gaga[/article] has signed on to perform at one of the Yoko Ono's Plastic Ono Band concerts taking place in Los Angeles in October.
According to Ono's website, Gaga will join a star-studded list for a pair of We Are Plastic Ono Band shows at the Orpheum Theater on October 1 and 2 that will include performances by John Lennon's widow, Jane's Addiction singer Perry Farrell, Wu-Tang Clan's RZA, experimental solo artist Tune-Yards, punk icon Iggy Pop and Lennon's youngest son, Sean. The shows will take place a week before what would have been John Lennon's 70th birthday and will presumably include tributes the the ex-Beatle.
Gaga is slated to take the stage on the second night on a bill that also features married Sonic Youth duo Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore. Among the other acts listed on the poster promoting the show: Cornelius, actress Carrie Fisher, director/actor Vincent Gallo, Harper Simon, Mike Watt, Nels Cline, Yuka Honda and Haruomi Hosono.
Though her name stands out on the bill, Gaga's inclusion is not that unusual. She performed [article id="1623591"]"Imagine," Lennon's signature song[/article] of hope, at last October's Human Rights Campaign gathering in Washington, D.C., where she tweaked the song's lyrics a bit to make references to the 1998 murder of gay college student Matthew Shepard.
To celebrate Lennon's birthday on October 9, Ono is hosting a series of events and a Plastic Ono Band concert in Iceland. EMI will reissue spiffed-up versions of Lennon's solo albums on October 5, along with some previously unreleased home recordings.
