Music 18/01/2018

'Concert for George' is being reissued in time to honour what would have been George Harrison's 75th birthday.

"We will always celebrate George's birthday, and this year we are releasing Concert for George in a very special package in memory of a special man," Harrison's widow Olivia said in a news release.

The concert for George was orginally held in November 2002, one year after Harrison's death and featured performances from Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Jeff Lynne, Tom Petty and more.

The eight times platinum selling and Grammy award winning live package from the concert is now being re-issued in a variety of formats including a limited-edition 10-disc deluxe box set.

Covers of 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps' by McCartney and Clapton and 'I Need You' by Petty will be available for instant download with all digital pre-orders and on streaming services.
