According to the news web visir.is, Ringo Starr, Lennon’s former band mate from the Beatles, is on his way to Iceland but the time of his arrival is not clear.

Ono’s installation is a beam of light that pays homage to the memory of the late Beatle and world peace. A special ceremony will take place tomorrow, October 9, John Lennon’s birthday, during which the beam will be on. It will light up the skies above the island until December 8, the day of Lennon’s assassination. 500,000 prayers for peace have been buried underneath the peace column.
