On November 29, 2002, one year after the passing of George Harrison, Olivia Harrison and Eric Clapton organized a performance tribute in his honor. Held at London’s Royal Albert Hall, the momentous evening featured George’s songs, and music he loved, performed by artists including Clapton, Joe Brown, Dhani Harrison, Jools Holland, Jeff Lynne, Paul McCartney, Monty Python, Tom Petty, Billy Preston, Ravi & Anoushka Shankar, Ringo Starr and more.
“...Mirrors the elegiac happy-sad quality of music that distilled the more spiritually heady aspirations of a segment of old-time hippie culture.” —Stephen Holden, New York Times
“This filmed record is a musical bliss-out.” —Chuck Wilson, L.A. Weekly
“Beautifully shot and directed, by Chris Menges and David Leland respectively, and there is a haunting touch: the presence of George’s son, Dhani, on guitar, looking near-identical to his dad in his twenties.” —Peter Rainer, Vulture
