A SPECIAL show in honour of The Beatles guitarist George Harrison will take place in Colchester this week.

The George Harrison Project, the UK's leading tribute to the musician, will perform at Charter Hall, in Cowdray Avenue, on Friday.

The show will celebrate Harrison's biggest hits from his time with The Beatles and The Traveling Wilburys, as well his solo catalogue.

Harrison, along with John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and Ringo Starr, played a crucial role in The Beatles becoming the best-selling music band worldwide.

Following the end of Beatlemania, Harrison formed The Traveling Wilburys, a supergroup consisting of notable artists such as Bob Dylan, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison, and Tom Petty.

Harrison, who passed away in 2001, went on to have a distinguished solo career, releasing 12 studio albums such as Living In The Material World, Cloud Nine, Brainwashed, and his classic triple album All Things Must Pass.

As part of their 2024 tour, the performers will bring some of Harrison's best songs back to life, while Friday's performance will also include video footage and facts about George and his music.

It is suitable for all ages, with a start time of 7.30pm.

Tickets are priced at £22 and can be purchased by visiting colchester-events.co.uk.
