(Newswire.net -- September 5, 2013) Toronto, ON -- John Brower, a promoter of The Toronto Rock and Roll Revival held at Varsity Stadium on September 13, 1969, brings to Toronto a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the only authorized physical copy of artwork created by all four Beatles.
The original was given to the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967 as a gift from The Beatles who were unable to attend. The magnificent example measuring 40 x 60 inches will be unveiled at The Hard Rock Cafe on Tuesday, September 10, 2013, at an exclusive Film Festival party. Doors open @ 9 P.M.
“This work of art was created by all four of The Beatles and is the only time they all participated in such an artistic endeavor.” Brower continued.
Tom Wilkes, one of the producers of Monterey Pop was entrusted with the art and his estate has authorized this reproduction.

To be held during the Toronto International Film Festival, the party is being hosted by Bella Luma Films and CanWood Entertainment at the legendary Hard Rock Cafe’s second floor parlour.
This party will also celebrate and announce the making of the feature movie POP 69. Slated for production in the Spring of 2014, the film recounts the adventures of Brower and friends as they unwittingly changed the musical and cultural landscape forever by staging this historic Rock and Roll Festival.
“Not only do I get to share the only known art work created by all four of the Beatles, but I also get to promote the upcoming film production of my early years as a rock festival promoter.”
It was at the “Brower Walker Presents” historic 1969 Toronto music festival that John Lennon performed for the first time ever other than as a Beatle. The following week he told the others, “it’s over”. As Ringo stated sometime later, “When John and Eric got back from Toronto, The Beatles were over.”
Please join us in celebrating the announcement of POP 69 and witness the unveiling of this iconic artwork!
Doors open at 9pm On September 10th 2013 at the Hard Rock Café Toronto (Dundas Square- 279 Yonge Street, Toronto, M5B 1N8). Visit www.pop69party.com to RSVP
