Something About George – The George Harrison Story
“Something About George – The George Harrison Story” is a performance which pays tribute to our George, and was met with acclaim by both audiences and critics when it closed Liverpool Theatre Festival in September 2021.
Now West End performer and musician Daniel Taylor is set to take the show on the road for an 8 venue UK tour, culminating at the Edinburgh Fringe this summer. Daniel is an award-winning actor, producer, and director. He has previously played John Lennon in the award-winning “Lennon Through A Glass Onion”; Sammy in “Blood Brothers”; and appeared at the very first Liverpool Theatre Festival in his show, “The Very Best Of Tommy Cooper”.
“Something About George” is written by Jon Fellowes, who co-produces the show alongside Gary Edward Jones and theatre producer Bill Elms. Together they make up Something About Productions. The company has a similar show going, “Something About Simon – The Paul Simon Story”.
Featuring beautiful songs like “My Sweet Lord”, “Something”, and “Handle With Care”, Something About George showcases Harrison’s solo material and music from rock ‘n’ roll’s greatest supergroup, The Traveling Wilburys which was made up of Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison, and Tom Petty.
And any show celebrating one of the Fab Four just has to include a few classics from The Beatles. From heartbreak to hedonism and songwriting to success, “Something About George” celebrates a life that was anything but quiet.
This is the kind legacy keeping that will work. Better than most copy-cat bands.
