‘Concert For George’ (Harrison) Documentary Gets a 20th Anniversary Re-Release

The re-release is set for November 29, 2022

As Pitchfork and other sources report, Concert for George, the film shot at a 2002 concert honoring the late George Harrison, will screen in theaters around the world for its 20th anniversary on November 29. The film and its soundtrack have been remastered in Dolby Atmos, and a new introduction by Olivia and Dhani Harrison will precede screenings.

The concert took place on the first anniversary of the Beatles guitarist’s death, the concert was organized by Eric Clapton and Olivia Harrison. It was staged at London’s Royal Albert Hall and featured Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Ravi and Anoushka Shankar, Jools Holland, Jeff Lynne, members of Monty Python, and more.

In a press release, Olivia Harrison said, “A long time ago, imagining his ideal gig, George had said, ‘I could do something like that someday… [it’s] the perfect idea… I mean if I had a ‘special’ I would like to have a few people who mean something to me.’”

She continued: “The most deeply moving songs written by George, whose meanings were potentized by his absence, played with heart and soul by a core group of friends. It is a joy to be able to relive that incredible evening again, on a big screen, 20 years on.”
