George Harrison live at Fairfield Hall, Croydon with Delaney & Bonnie

This was George Harrison's sixth and final night performing on the UK tour of Delaney & Bonnie, a husband and wife act from the US.

Harrison stayed on the tour for six dates, until it ended. They played two shows each night, in Bristol, Birmingham, Sheffield, Newcastle, Liverpool and ending in Croydon.

Several of the shows were also recorded for possible album release - the result was 1970's Delaney & Bonnie & Friends On Tour With Eric Clapton. Harrison was credited as "Mysterioso".

Harrison had previously performed at Croydon's Fairfield Hall with The Beatles on 7 September 1963.
