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 was there for five of the tour's six dates, playing two shows each night. He appeared in Bristol, Birmingham, Sheffield, Liverpool and Croydon. He didn't perform at the Newcastle shows on 5 December, instead briefly leaving the tour to visit his unwell mother.

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.
