The Natural Law Party Presents George Harrison and Friends - Inspiration to the Youth of Great Britain - 'Election is a Celebration'

6 April 1992 - 19:30

George Harrison's live appearances in the aftermath of The Beatles were infrequent to say the least. Aside from a major 1974 tour of the United States and a 1991 tour of Japan with Eric Clapton, George's live performances onstage were limited to special events or charities such as the Prince's Trust Rock Gala in 1987 or the Concert For Bangla Desh in 1971. However, on April 6, 1992, George held a benefit concert for the Natural Law Party, a transnational party based on the teachings of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. The venue was the Royal Albert Hall, making this George's first live performance in London since the famous rooftop concert by The Beatles in January 1969. Joining George on stage for his performance of While My Guitar Gently Weeps was the late Gary Moore. Gary was a phenomenal blues and rock guitarist and had worked with greats such as B.B. King and Albert King. He was also a member of the 70?s rock band Thin Lizzy. He had worked with George before, and had even played the lead guitar solo on the Traveling Wilburys recording, She's My Baby. Sadly, Gary passed away due to a heart attack this past February (2011).
While this was George's last full concert, he did make a subsequent appearance at Madison Square Gardens on October 16, 1992 at a tribute concert for Bob Dylan celebrating the 30 year point in Bob's career. George performed the Dylan classics If Not For You and Absolutely Sweet Marie.
