George Harrison will be remembered with a all-star tribute concert in Los Angeles this fall, featuring performances by Brian Wilson, Norah Jones, the Killers‘ Brandon Flowers and Mark Stoermer, the Flaming Lips‘ Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd and even “Weird Al” Yankovic.

It is hosted by the Best Fest, which previously produced similar events including Dylan Fest, Petty Fest and Stones Fest.
The lineup will also include Heart‘s Ann Wilson, Spoon‘s Britt Daniel, Butch Walker, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Cold War Kids, Nick Valensi of the Strokes, Ian Astbury of the Cult and Weezer‘s Brian Bell, among others. Dhani Harrison, George Harrison’s son, will perform and with additional special guests teased.
