George Fest, a star-studded tribute show dedicated to the music of George Harrison, will be released as a concert film and album on Feb. 26, 2016.
The show, which took place on Sept. 28th, 2014 at the The Fonda Theater in Los Angeles, featured some of music’s biggest names performing songs from Harrison’s Beatles, Travelling Wilburys and solo catalogs. Performers included Brian Wilson and Al Jardine, The Flaming Lips, Perry Farrell, Conan O’Brien, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Heart’s Ann Wilson, The Killers’ Brandon Flowers, Norah Jones and Harrison’s son Dhani. Dhani also produced the album alsongside David Zonshine.
“I’ve always imagined a small club show where my generation of musicians could cut loose on some of the deeper tracks from his career,” Dhani said in a release. “So, in a totally new and vibrant way, I once again found myself taking the stage with some of my most treasured musical heroes to the sound of the most familiar music in my life… I hope you enjoy listening to these as much as I do. They are some of the best interpretations of my father’s songs I could have ever thought possible.”
The concert will be released on CD, CVD, Blu-Ray, vinyl and digital download. In addition to concert footage, the DVD/Blu-Ray features clips of the musicians discussing Harrison’s influence on them and their music.
