Paul and Ringo Play for George
- Two former Beatles reunited on anniversary of Harrison's death

RESPECTS in musical form will be paid to George Harrison tonight at the Royal Albert Hall when Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr lead tributes to their former Beatle colleague.

"The tribute will resound not only within the Albert Hall, but hopefully reach the spirit of a man so loved by his friends who will be performing and attending," Harrison's wife Olivia said.

The concert marks the first anniversary of Harrison's death. As well as the two surviving Beatles, tonight's performers at the Albert Hall include Tom Petty, Ravi Shankar, Geoff Lynne and Jools Holland.

Money raised by the concert will go to Harrison's own charity, the Material World Charitable Foundation, which helps people with special needs and various artistic schemes.
