Scene News: Perry Farrell of Janes Addiction Pays Tribute to “Here Comes The Sun” on George Fest Video

From the star-studded George Fest lineup, we’d like to share Perry Farrell’s rendition of Here Comes The Sun. Sharing the stage with Norah Jones, Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips and Dhani Harrison, the fantastic rendition pays tribute to George Harrison’s memorable hit.

The day after what would have been George Harrison’s 73rd birthday, February 26, 2016, Hot Records Ltd. and Vagrant Records are proud to present George Fest: A Night To Celebrate The Music Of George Harrison. Recorded and filmed on September 28th, 2014 at the The Fonda Theater in Los Angeles. This wonderful live tribute will be available in 4 configurations including 2xCD/DVD, 2xCD/Blu-Ray and digital download.

Produced by Dhani Harrison and David Zonshine, Harrison stated, “I’ve always imagined a small club show where my generation of musicians could cut loose on some of the deeper tracks from his career… So, in a totally new and vibrant way, I once again found myself taking the stage with some of my most treasured musical heroes to the sound of the most familiar music in my life… I hope you enjoy listening to these as much as I do. They are some of the best interpretations of my father’s songs I could have ever thought possible.”

The line up includes Brian Wilson, Nora Jones, The Killers’ Brandon Flowers, Conan O’Brien, The Flaming Lips, Ben Harper, Britt Daniel from Spoon, Heart’s Ann Wilson, Dhani Harrison, “Weird Al” Yankovic, The Strokes’ Nick Valensi, Perry Farrell and many others.

On top of the concert footage the DVD or Blu-Ray has interviews with the musicians backstage and at rehearsals talking about George Harrison’s influence on their art.
