George Harrison's death to be marked with two concerts in Liverpool
Gigs to be held on the 10th anniversary of late Beatle's passing
Acts he signed to The Beatles' Apple label including Brute Force and The Radha Krishna Temple along with The Mersey Beatles, Singh Strings, Andre Barreau from The Bootleg Beatles and the Dovedale School Choir, will be among those who will perform at the gigs at St George's Hall and The Cavern Club in his home city.
The St George's Hall concert will be free and visitors from the Radha Krishna Temple will feed all the performers and audiences at both concerts free of charge, reports BBC News.
Harrison died of lung cancer on November 29, 2001 at the age of 58.
Film legend Martin Scorsese's documentary on Harrison, Living In The Material World, will be released on DVD on Monday (October 10).
The project has been co-produced with the guitarist's widow Olivia and will feature home movies and interviews with the surviving Beatles members. The film traces Harrison's life from his musical beginnings in Liverpool, through his time as a filmmaker and philanthropist.
