London, July 30 (ANI): Three time capsules are being created as a tribute to late Beatles legend John Lennon to mark what would have been his 70th birthday and to preserve his legacy.

The capsules, which will be stored at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, will be reopened in 30 years’ time on October 9 2040, to mark the centenary of Lennon’s birth, the BBC reported.

They will contain music from his post-Beatles career, and the public will be encouraged to submit ideas about what should be included in the time capsules to help preserve Lennon’s legacy over the next 30 years.

Fans have until September 15 to submit birthday wishes, music performances, artwork and other dedications for inclusion in the capsules, which will also include newly restored prints of the musician’s LP artwork and a newly commissioned essay on his career.

Lennon’s widow Yoko Ono has said she is “delighted” to support the project. (ANI)
