The 9th Annual Johnny Ramone Tribute will take place on Sunday, August 18th at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles, home of the 8-foot tall bronze Johnny Ramone Memorial Statue. This year's event will be hosted by cult icon John Waters, and will again celebrate Johnny's love of cult movies with a director's cut screening of Waters' 1990 classic film, Cry-Baby, (Courtesy of NBC Universal and Swank Motion Pictures) along with vintage Ramones live concert footage and music videos projected on a 42-foot Mausoleum wall. Cry-Baby co-star and longtime Johnny Ramone friend Traci Lords will be one of the evening's special guests, and will take part in a Q&A and autograph signing alongside John Waters. Fans are encouraged to dress up as their favorite founding member of The Ramones (Johnny, Joey, Dee Dee or Tommy) to win prizes in a look-alike contest judged by Johnny's wife Linda Ramone, and Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols. Fans can also capture photo opportunities at the Johnny Ramone memorial statue during the event and enjoy music that will be spun throughout the ceremony grounds during the event, along with many more surprises.
