George Harrison’s Passing Marked With Two Concerts In Liverpool

George Harrison died of lung cancer 10 years ago, on Nov. 29, and his hometown of Liverpool will remember and honor his life with two concerts set to take place on the anniversary of his death.

Bands that Harrison signed to the Beatles‘ Apple label have been chosen to perform, including Brute Force, who George and his bandmates tried to expose to the world but failed when Capitol Records got cold feet. Harrison loved an unreleased song of theirs called ‘The King of Fuh’ and hoped to turn it into a hit record. Taking it back to Apple, adding strings from the London Philharmonic and pressing it, still wasn’t enough to get Capitol to release or distribute it. Allegedly, the Beatles privately pressed 2000 copies for their friends, which would make ‘The King Of Fuh’ one of the rarest Apple records ever released.

According to NME, the Radha Krishna Temple, along with the Mersey Beatles, Singh Strings, Andre Barreau from the Bootleg Beatles and the Dovedale School choir are also scheduled to play for these two very special honorary gigs. The St Georges Hall concert is free and visitors from the Radha Krishna Temple will feed the bands and those in attendance at both gigs, free of charge.

These concerts follow closely on the heels of HBO’s recently debuted two-part documentary about the guitar legend’s life. So while it’s true, as Harrison said on his most famous album title — that ‘All Things Must Pass,’ when it comes to honoring Beatle George – all things must be remembered.
