Co-producer of the show 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.

"To play the famous Liverpool Philharmonic Hall on his 80th birthday will be a very special concert indeed.

"He may have been the 'Quiet Beatle' but he still speaks loudly through his wonderful songs. It's going to be a night to remember."

"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.”
