George Fest: A Night To Honour The Music of George Harrison took place at Los Angeles’ El Rey Theatre and also featured cover versions of the former Beatle’s hits from the likes of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Brandon Flowers, Weird Al Yankovic and Conan O’Brien.

All proceeds from the gig went to Sweet Relief – a charity for musicians struggling financially due to illness or disability.

Meanwhile, O’Brien hosted a week of tribute performances on his TV show Conan last week, with artists including Norah Jones and Harrison’s son Dhani performing covers each evening. Beck also performed a cover of ‘All Things Must Pass’ track ‘Wah Wah’ on the show.

A comprehensive boxset compiling Harrison’s first six records entitled ‘The Apple Years 1968 – 1975’ was released last week (September 23).
