Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono Lennon, Olivia Harrison and Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberte took part in a special dedication ceremony today in honor of John Lennon and George Harrison.

Paul McCartney said, "It's great to be unveiling this because the guys aren't here and the show's been such a great success. They were magnificent men and it is an honor to unveil this plaque to them." Ringo Starr said, "George was a great musician, he was a dear friend. I love him and miss him. God bless him and I'm sure wherever he is, he's smiling right now."
