We told you this one was going to be special.

Saturday night's brilliant show/tribute to Yoko Ono at the Orpheum brought some extremely special moments with Tune-Yards, the RZA (who seriously should consider hiring Sean Lennon and his friends as his touring band), Mike Watt, Carrie Fisher, and the world's biggest pop star, Lady Gaga, who sang the blues, rolled around on top of a piano with Yoko, and convinced the unconvinced with a riveting appearance.

Here are some first snapshots from the show:
