THE BEATLES: GEORGE HARRISON 75TH B-DAY THIS WEEKEND

posted by @lisaontheradio -


George Harrison would have turned 75 this Sunday, February 25th. 

To celebrate, the 2002 tribute to him, Concert for George, is being reissued today in numerous configurations, including, for the first time, vinyl.

Concert for George was organized by his friend Eric Clapton at London's Royal Albert Hall on November 29th, 2002, the first anniversary of Harrison's death from cancer.

"I had no idea how big it should be, but it kind of took shape very quickly," said Clapton. "I thought the Albert Hall would be good and it was easy to pick the people 'cause there was a definite group of people that were always involved in George's life at one stage or another and came and went."

Among those people who took the stage that night were Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Billy Preston, Gary Brooker, Jeff Lynne, Tom Petty, Jim Capaldi and Ravi Shankar

In addition to today's re-release, the film is showing in theaters around the country into March.
