    Of them all, only McCartney looks out of place, perhaps mistaking the venue for Vegas. There in a nutshell could be the answer to why the Beatles broke up. show more

    It provides both deep musical pleasures and a touching farewell to the former Beatle. show more

    It's spookily touching to see this massed group of former rock gods gathered to honor one of their fallen. Bald spots and graying shags predominate; the giant velvet lapels of 1969 have given way to sensible sport coats; the granny glasses are for real. show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    Anyone who remembers Harrison fondly will enjoy this musical tribute, though it assumes a level of familiarity with Harrison's associates that not all viewers will have. show more

    The jamboree is beautifully shot and directed, by Chris Menges and David Leland respectively, and there is a haunting touch: the presence of George’s son, Dhani, on guitar, looking near-identical to his dad in his twenties. show more

    The sweet, solemn music of George Harrison, who died two years ago, has rarely sounded more majestic than in the sweeping performances of the enlarged star-studded band that gathered in London at Royal Albert Hall on Nov. 29 to commemorate his legacy. show more

    This filmed record is a musical bliss-out. show more

    Both a heartwarming tribute to the late Beatle and a study of hair patterns in the aging British male, Concert for George, recorded at the Royal Albert Hall a year to the day after Harrison's death, manages both reverence and joy. show more

    A fantastic reminder of the musical genius of George and how much he was overshadowed as a Beatle, A lot of younger people could learn a lot from this movie about how music was made years ago. We relied on the God given talent in our hands and pretty basic instruments by today\'s standards, not computers or Pro-tools.
