An acclaimed show highlighting the incredible talent of the late Beatle George Harrison is coming to Felixstowe. It follows a successful run at Edinburgh Festival Fringe and sell out shows in 2023.

Something About George – The George Harrison Story, pays tribute to the man dubbed the “quiet Beatle” it will visit thirty-one venues across England, Scotland, Wales and the Republic of Ireland, its biggest tour to date. The tour opened with two shows at the Floral Pavilion in New Brighton on Sat 3 February and will be in Felixstowe at the Spa Pavilion on Saturday 24th March.

West End performer and musician Daniel Taylor, fresh from his recent TV and media appearances with partner Shirley Ballas (head judge from Strictly Come Dancing), front’s the band of five and tells the fascinating story of George and performs his biggest hits. The band are Joe Smithson (MD, Guitar and Vocals), Callum Macmillan (Percussion/Drums), Tom Kinton (Base Guitar and Vocals)and James Breckon (Keyboard and Vocals).

Featuring beautiful songs like My Sweet Lord, Something, Got My Mind Set On You, and My Guitar Gently Weeps, Something About George showcases Harrison’s incredible 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, of course any show celebrating one of the Fab Four just must include a few classics from The Beatles.

From heartbreak to hedonism and song writing to success, Something About George celebrates a life that was anything but quiet.

Daniel Taylor trained at Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art in London and is an award-winning actor, producer, and director. He has previously played John Lennon in the award-winning Lennon Through A Glass Onion, he is also known from his many years in Blood Brothers, The Very Best Of Tommy Cooper, Twopence To Cross The Mersey and most recently in By The Waters Of Liverpool.

Daniel said: “I’m really looking forward to taking Something About George back out on the road in February and March for a much larger tour, performing it again for UK audiences and also premiering in Ireland. We had such a great reception when we performed the show last year and I can guarantee people a fantastic journey through George’s life and his amazing music.”

Something About George – The George Harrison Story iswritten by Jon Fellowes, who co-produces show alongside Liverpool-born singer songwriter Gary Edward Jones and theatre producer and publicist Bill Elms. Collectively, the trio are Something About Productions, the creative team behind the hugely successful Something About Simon – The Paul Simon Story.

Co-producer Bill Elms said: “It may be twenty years since the world lost George Harrison, but he lives on through his incomparable music, and this show created in Liverpool, highlights the legacy he left the world. To have played the famous Liverpool Philharmonic Hall to a sell-out audience on his 80th birthday last year was a very special moment indeed. There’s been nothing but praise for this wonderful show which will now visit 28 venues across the UK and heads across the water to Ireland for 3 special dates. The show is going from strength to strength and is a wonderful and moving tribute to one of Liverpool’s favourite sons.”

Something About George is not a tribute show as we know it. It’s one musician authentically telling the story and honouring the music of another. For around ninety minutes, allow Daniel Taylor to take you back and tell you Something About George.
