Conan‘s “George Harrison Week” tribute to the late Beatle reached a real highpoint last night with Dhani Harrison hitting the late night stage to pay homage to his father. Harrison took on All Things Must Pass like “Let It Down” (on the live show) and “Ballad Of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll)” with a little help from Big Black Delta, which you can see here.
To celebrate the life and legacy of “the quiet Beatle,” George Harrison, LA’s El Rey Theatre will host a collection of artists who will play a one-night tribute concert for George Fest: An Evening To Celebrate The Music Of George Harrison.
