TEN years since George Harrison died, Liverpool will unite to celebrate his life.
Across three events tomorrow, the city will commemorate the former Beatle, who died of lung cancer on November 29, 2001.
“Liverpool will pay a special musical tribute to its beloved son throughout the day,” said organiser Denise Theophilus.
There will be a short Liverpool Cathedral at 11.30am.
“People are invited to bring a flower or a paper symbol of peace, with a suitable prayer written on it as love and peace were the precepts most dear to George,” added Ms Theophilus.
At 2pm the city will stage the Free Concert For George in the Concert Room at St. George’s Hall. In the presence of the Lord Mayor, bands marking different eras of George’s life will perform.
The acts include Jeff Slate (of the Badge), Lee Christian (of Smilex), Singh Strings and The Rebels, Tsema, The Liverpool Ukelele Orchestra, The Mersey Beatles and Andre Barreau (George in The Bootleg Beatles).
