Paul Simon to Be Part of George Harrison Week on ‘Conan’
Beginning Monday (Sept. 22), 'Conan' will pay tribute to the late George Harrison with a week's worth of musical guests. Yesterday, it was announced that Paul Simon will perform a Harrison song on Tuesday's episode, which will air on TBS at 11:00PM.
ABC News Radio reveals that Beck (Monday), Harrison's son Dhani (Wednesday) and Norah Jones (Thurday) round out the schedule. They also note that Harrison and Jones will play at George Fest on Sept. 28 at the Fonda Theater in Los Angeles. The concert, a benefit for the Jameson Neighborhood Fund, will also feature Brian Wilson, Ann Wilson and Matt Sorum.
The week coincides with the Sept. 23 release of 'The Apple Years 1968-75,' an eight-CD box that includes 'Wonderwall Music' and 'Electronic Sound,' both of which were recorded while he was in the Beatles, along with his better known albums like 'All Things Must Pass' and 'Living in the Material World.'
In 1976, Simon and Harrison performed 'Here Comes the Sun' and 'Homeward Bound' on 'Saturday Night Live.' The video is embedded above.
