Celebrating George Harrison And The 10th Anniversary Of ‘Concert For George’
23 November 2012
On November 29, 2002, one year after the passing of George Harrison, Olivia Harrison and longtime friend Eric Clapton organized a performance tribute in his honour. His closest friends gathered at London’s Royal Albert Hall to celebrate his life the only way they knew how – by playing his music.
This year, on the 11th anniversary of George’s passing, join us in paying tribute to the life and music of George Harrison.
