The last time Lennon was on stage

It would be the last time we would ever see John Lennon on stage.

Back on this day (28th Nov) in 1974 the former Beatle would join Elton John at Madison Square Garden.

John had made a bet that if Elton's 'Whatever Gets You Thru The Night' made number one in the USA then he would perform with the Rocket Man.

The pair played that song and also gave the crowd a rendition of The Beatles' "I Saw Her Standing There" and "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds."

Take a look back at that moment here:
