Check Out George Fest: The Star-Studded Tribute to George Harrison
The tribute to George Harrison called "George Fest: A Night to Celebrate the Music of George Harrison" took place this past weekend and as you might expect, it was filled with highly respected musicians paying homage to his legacy.
It was held on September 28th at Los Angeles' Fonda Theatre.
As reported at rollingstone.com:
The event, which featured performances by the likes of Brian Wilson, Norah Jones and more, was one of many tributes to the Beatle, whose first six solo albums were recently compiled in a new box set, The Apple Years 1968-75.
George Fest also featured performances by "Weird Al" Yankovic, Harrison's son Dhani, and members of the Killers, Spoon, Velvet Revolver and more.
The show doubled as a benefit for the Jameson Neighborhood Fund, which raises money for local charities, and one hundred percent of ticket sales for George Fest went to Sweet Relief, a charity that aids career musicians who are struggling to make ends meet.
