Put together by Blurred Vision band frontman Sepp Osley, who himself could have been a poster child for War Child UK having escaped war-torn Iran as a young child in the 80s, the ‘Dear John’ concert is not only a celebration of the music, legacy, and 80th birthday of the Beatle legend, but a coming together of fans and artists from different generations and backgrounds
