Simon is no stranger to performing the hit. He’s sung the Abbey Road classic at various festivals and concerts over the years, most notably on Saturday Night Live in 1976, joined by Harrison himself. Beck performed a cover of Harrison’s 1970 song ‘Wah-Wah’ on Monday’s show, and performances from Norah Jones and Harrison’s son, Dhani, will follow later this week.
The weeklong tribute promotes the release of the new box set, George Harrison: The Apple Years 1968-1975, which compiles the ex-Beatle’s first six solo albums with unreleased live recordings and demos, and boasts a DVD featuring previously-unseen live footage.
