Just announced is the soon to be released album and video documenting the star-studded 2014 tribute concert to the late, great Beatles guitarist and songwriter George Harrison.
The package features performances by Weezer’s Brian Bell, The Killers’ singer Brandon Flowers, and Jane’s Addiction’s Perry Farrell.
Due out early next year George Fest: A Night to Celebrate the Music of George Harrison will be released on February 26, exactly one day after what would’ve been George Harrison’s 73rd birthday.
The concert’s lineup also includes Spoon’s Britt Daniel, The Strokes’ Nick Valensi, plus, The Flaming Lips, Cold War Kids and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, and with the addition of talk-show host Conan O’Brien and “Weird Al” Yankovic, you got quite the all star lineup.
The George Fest concert was filmed and recorded on September 28th, 2014 at The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles. It will be available as a two-CD/DVD set, a two-CD/Blu-ray package, a high-quality three-LP vinyl collection, and of course as a digital download.
The concert, which was produced by Harrison’s son, Dhani (who also performed at the show), was made up of Beatles songs written and co-written by George Harrison and of course, the great man’s own solo compositions.
