A new music show highlighting the talent of the late Beatle George Harrison will come to Sussex as it embarks on a UK tour this month.

Something About George – The George Harrison Story pays tribute to the man dubbed the “quiet Beatle” and will visit 12 UK venues including a special performance at Liverpool’s Philharmonic Hall on February 25, which would have been Harrison’s 80th birthday.

The Beatle’s lead guitarist and singer-songwriter died from lung cancer in 2001 at the age of 58.

West End performer and musician Daniel Taylor, fresh from his TV appearance in BBC’s Unbreakable, where he made the final with his partner Shirley Ballas, head judge from Strictly Come Dancing, front’s the band of five and tells the fascinating story of Harrison while performing his biggest hits.

The band are MD Max O’Hara, Callum Macmillan, Tom Kinton and Joe Smithson.

Something About George will head to the White Rock Theatre in Hastings on March 3.

Featuring songs such as My Sweet Lord, Something, Got My Mind Set On You, and Handle With Care, Something About George showcases Harrison’s solo material and music from supergroup The Travelling Wilburys, which was made up of Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison and Tom Petty.

There will also be a few classics from The Beatles.

Mr Taylor said: “I’m really looking forward to taking Something About George back on the road in February and March, performing it again for UK audiences, especially as it coincides with George’s 80th birthday.

“We had a great reception when we performed the show earlier this year across the UK including a well-received run at Edinburgh Festival Fringe, I can guarantee people a fantastic journey through George’s life and amazing music.”

Co-producer Bill Elms said: “It may be 20 years since the world lost George Harrison, but he lives on through his incomparable music, and this show created in Liverpool, highlights the legacy he left the world.”
