Possibly the most uplifting moments of the last 10 years. I just saw the Video Here, and it is uplifting, a great tribute to George.

I agree. I have watched so many concerts and this is my favorite one. So much great music and a very emotional concert.

I like the "Inner Light" cover. Who's the girl playing the sitar? She is amazing!

Thanks! 

I wonder if it's typical of Indian music for songs to be 20 minutes long. Seriously. It takes dedication to play for as long as these guys are playing.

It does. Is It any Good? I skipped it the first time I watched/listened.

Yeah. I enjoy Indian stuff as "background music." (I listen while I post.) Right now there's a pretty cool orchestral piece going on.

I started crying at the end of that even though I'm not much for crying at movies. But I guess Beatle related things like that just do things to me.

Indian music is very serious music. It really moves your heart and is difficult to play. I received a Sitar for a Christmas present last year and it is an amazing instrument. It takes a lot of patients to tune and play buy very gratifying. I can see why George loved the instrument so much. It puts on another level musically.

I couldn't watch it. I wanted, but it was really hard. I don't know why. I want to celebrate his birthday, but I just feel sad, and I know I shouldn't. I think I'll have to do it when I'm in a more cheerful mood. a-hard-days-night-george-5

I've watched up until I Want To Tell You and I'm surprised that I actually listened to the whole Indian section. It was a lot more entertaining than I thought it would be and also impressive that they can do that for 20 minutes, and from what I can tell the non-western-orchestral members memorized their parts.

Oh I cried too several times. There would just be some parts where I started tearing like if they showed Olivia. I like die. God George made amazing music. It really is moving. 

I'm a mess right now.

Well we all shine on like the moon, the stars, and the sun.

I'm watching this now. I've had this saved on my DVR since 9/9/09. 🙂

That was the first time I watched it. I was no nieve when it came to Beatle/solo music back then. I've come along way in less than 2 years. I just remember looking at Dhani and being like "George is right there. OMG this kid is George!"

Lets just say my love for the Harrisons started right about then.

Awwww...I found when I started watching the concert tonight I had left it in the middle. I was also probably in a mood to not wanti to watch it because I was too sad then.

Well.. Paulsbass said it all..

 

I watched the complete concert yesterday evening after watching the news about Libya and the rest of the Middle East almost all day, and listening to the prayer, Arpan and George's music was the best way to make me feel at peace.

It's strange how music can affect us in the most amazing of ways.

 

Not only does Dhani look A LOT like his dad, but he also plays the guitar in almost the same way, how he moves his legs and how he looks so focused.. Beautiful Boy.

 

I agree with Mr. Sun King. Tom Betty's performance was, to me at least, weird. It's the first time I see him - is he always like this?

I never liked Ringo's "Honey Don't" before, but his performance in this concert is beauutiful..

Happy Birthday Georgie heart

Do I have to keep on talking till I can't go on!
