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. We had such a great reception when we performed the show earlier this year across the UK, I can guarantee people a fantastic journey through George’s life and his amazing music.”

Something About George – The George Harrison Story is written 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 20 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 earlier this 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 in spring 2024, It’s going from strength to strength and is going to be a great few months on tour.”

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.
