Various Artists Concert For George Limited Vinyl 4LP Box Set

Overview:
On November 29, 2002, one year after the passing of George Harrison, Olivia Harrison and long-time friend 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 a line-up that included Eric Clapton, Jools Holland, Jeff Lynne, Paul McCartney, Monty Python, Tom Petty, Billy Preston, Ravi and Anoushka Shankar, Ringo Starr, Dhani Harrison and many more.

The performance was captured & released on CD & DVD in 2003 to critical & commercial acclaim. CONCERT FOR GEORGE has been certified 8-times platinum by the RIAA since its initial release in November 2003 and earned a 2004 Grammy® Award for Best Long Form Music Video.
Directed by David Leland (whose credits include the feature Wish You Were Here, HBO’s Band Of Brothers and the Traveling Wilburys video “Handle With Care”), CONCERT FOR GEORGE captures stunning renditions of some of the most significant music of the 20th century, including “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” (featuring Clapton on guitar, McCartney on piano and Starr on drums), “Taxman” (performed by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers) and “The Inner Light” (covered by Jeff Lynne and Anoushka Shankar). Lynne, Harrison’s longtime friend and collaborator, produced the audio elements of the concert, while Clapton oversaw the entire proceedings as Musical Director.
Worldwide launch activity coordinated around George Harrison’s 75th birthday– February 25th – in full conjunction with the Harrison family & estate.
Worldwide cinema screening events around launch.
First ever reissue of the performance across multiple formats & includes bonus material.
