All-Star George Harrison Tribute Concert Coming to CD and Blu-ray
A star-studded tribute concert held in honor of George Harrison is scheduled to make its way to stores in early 2016.
George Fest: A Night to Celebrate the Music of George Harrison arrives on digital and physical audio and video formats Feb. 26, 2016 — the day after what would have been Harrison's 73rd birthday. Filmed and recorded at the Fonda Theater in Los Angeles on Sept. 28, 2014, the concert gathers an eclectic array of his famous fans and musical peers, including Brian Wilson, Heart's Ann Wilson, Perry Farrell, and "Weird Al" Yankovic.
"I've always imagined a small club show where my generation of musicians could cut loose on some of the deeper tracks from his career," said Harrison's son Dhani, who co-produced George Fest and performed during the show. "So, in a totally new and vibrant way, I once again found myself taking the stage with some of my most treasured musical heroes to the sound of the most familiar music in my life... I hope you enjoy listening to these as much as I do. They are some of the best interpretations of my father's songs I could have ever thought possible."
