WATCH: 'Concert For George' Headed to Theaters

See Eric Clapton, Ringo Starr, Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne, and more in the trailer

February 22, 2018

In celebration of what would be George Harrison’s upcoming 75th birthday, the 2002 tribute concert held in honor of the late Beatles guitarist is headed to theaters nationwide.

The concert, which was held at London’s Royal Albert Hall a year after Harrison’s passing, was the brain child of his widow, Olivia, and longtime friend Eric Clapton. As Clapton says in the trailer below, it’s all about celebrating “the life and music of George Harrison,” and that’s exactly what everyone from Tom Petty to Monty Python did during the concert.

Concert for George features performances like Clapton, Paul McCartney, and Ringo Starr’s performance of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” as well as more of Harrison’s music and other music he simply loved.  

While it’s already showing in select theaters, Concert for George won’t hit most theaters until later this week through March. See a full list of theater dates here.

In the meantime, Concert for George is making its way to vinyl for the first time February 23, when it will also be made available as a CD, CD/DVD, CD/Blu-Ray, and digital reissue. Watch the vinyl unboxing below!
