Late Beatle George Harrison is set to receive a star on the renowned Hollywood Walk of Fame later this month.

The guitarist is being honoured posthumously at a Los Angeles ceremony to unveil the star on April 14 at 11:30am PST. It is set to take place along the Walk of Fame at 1750 Vine Street, in front of the Capitol Records building, and is open to the public.

Harrison's wife, Olivia, and son, Dhani, will be present to accept the honour on his behalf.

Meanwhile, Martin Scorsese is currently directing a documentary feature about Harrison's life, and Capitol/EMI will announce plans for a new Harrison music release on April 14.
