Concert for George
On November 29, 2002, one year after George Harrison’s death, an all-star cast of friends gather at London’s Royal Albert Hall for an emotional tribute. The concert features a piece composed in Harrison’s honor by his sitar mentor, Ravi Shankar, and a set of songs by Monty Python with special guest Tom Hanks. Musical director Eric Clapton then leads a band featuring George’s son Dhani Harrison and fellow Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr in a broad selection of Harrison’s best-loved songs.
