Once John Lennon left The Beatles, his solo performances were few and far between, but that doesn’t mean they didn’t happen.

Lennon appeared on the made-for-television special A Salute to Sir Lew Grade: The Master Showman at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in NYC. And, sadly, this was what would become his final public, on-stage performance. While the concert actually occurred on April 18, 1975, it aired stateside two months later on June 13.

Below, watch his performances of “Slippin' And Slidin'” and “Imagine.”
