George Harrison Memorial Concert Held Friday

Former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney will join some of the biggest names in music Friday for a memorial concert to George Harrison.

McCartney is due to appear on stage with Fab Four drummer Ringo Starr, former Cream frontman Eric Clapton and Jeff Lynne (news), co-founder of British band Electric Light Orchestra.
Harrison's widow arranged the concert at London's Royal Albert Hall with Clapton to mark the first anniversary of the former Beatle's death from cancer.
"The tribute for George will resound not only within the Albert Hall but hopefully reach the spirit of the man so loved by his friends who will be performing and attending," Olivia Harrison said in a statement.
Other performers due to appear include British musician Jools Holland, American singer Tom Petty and Ravi Shankar, the Indian sitar player who influenced Harrison.
The sell-out concert will raise money for one of Harrison's favorite charities, the Material World Charitable Foundation, which supports the arts, education and people with special needs. LONDON (Reuters)
