The 3rd Annual GEORGE HARRISON Birthday Show GODFREY TOWNSEND BAND at Times Square
Type: Music & Concerts
George Harrison was admired for his commitment to spirituality, which he believed could improve lives and protect the planet. His post-Beatles songs reflect that conviction and are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago. Through music, visuals, and commentary about his journey of self-discovery, these tribute events honor George Harrison, his music, and his principles.
