George Harrison, former Beatle and globally celebrated musician, will be honored later this month in a one-night tribute concert.

According to Consequence of Sound, artists the likes of The Killers’ Brandon Flowers, members of Weezer, “Weird” Al Yankovic, Brian Wilson, Norah Jones, members of The Strokes, Cold War Kids, Spoon’s Britt Daniel, and members of Velvet Revolver, plus more will gather to remember and celebrate the life of the fallen musical genius. The event will take place Sept. 28 at Los Angeles’ El Rey Theater.

Harrison, who died in November 2001 due to complications from throat cancer, is partly known for launching the first-ever benefit rock concert, The Concert For Bangladesh, in 1971. That show brought in over 40,000 people during two nights in New York City.

100 percent of proceeds from this event, titled ‘George Fest,’ will be donated to Sweet Relief Musicians Fund, a program designed to donate money to professionals musicians in need of assistance. Follow the link for ticket information.
