DHANI HARRISON PAYS TRIBUTE TO ‘LET IT DOWN’ IN LATEST GEORGE FEST VIDEO
From the star-studded George Fest lineup, we’d like to share Dhani Harrison’s rendition of ‘Let It Down‘ featuring: Mark Stoermer (The Killers) on Bass, Stephen Perkins (Jane’s Addiction) on drums, Jimmy Vivino and Jonathan Bates (Big Black Delta) on guitar and Aaron Embry on keyboards. This fantastic performance pays tribute to George Harrison’s memorable hit.
The day after what would have been George Harrison’s 73rd birthday, February 26, 2016, Hot Records Ltd. and Vagrant Records are proud to present George Fest: A Night To Celebrate The Music Of George Harrison. Recorded and filmed on September 28th, 2014 at the The Fonda Theater in Los Angeles. This wonderful live tribute will be available in 4 configurations including 2xCD/DVD, 2xCD/Blu-Ray, 3xLP (180 gram) and digital download.
Produced by Dhani Harrison and David Zonshine, Harrison stated, “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… 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.”
George Fest will premiere on MTV Live and VH1 Classic on Saturday February 27th at 9:00 PM EST!
