The Concert for Bangladesh
Release Date: January 1st, 1972
G|1 hr. 39 min.
Moved by news reports of a famine in Bangladesh, George Harrison organized arguably the very first all-star charity rock concert with this August 1971 show at New York City's Madison Square Garden. In his first major solo gig since the breakup of the Beatles the year before, George headlines an impressive lineup that includes a set of traditional Indian music by his sitar mentor, Ravi Shankar, and performances by Leon Russell, Billy Preston, Badfinger, Eric Clapton and Bob Dylan.
Director: Saul Swimmer
