A new music show highlighting the songs of the late Beatle George Harrison is set to embark on a UK tour after being premiered in Liverpool.

The Wirral Globe verdict for Something About George – The George Harrison Story was four stars at its premiere. It met with acclaim by audiences when it closed the Liverpool Theatre Festival last September.

Liverpool-born West End performer and musician Daniel Taylor is looking ahead to the seven date tour this summer and a two-week residency at the Edinburgh Fringe.

It will be performed as a one-man, one-act festival version for one week at the Assembly Festival Gardens in Coventry, UK City of Culture and then at Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where it will be at the Assembly Festival for two weeks.

And a new full two-hour show, with visuals, soundscape and set design will be performed at the other venues – with Danny joined by three other top musicians to create a fab four band.

And the 2022 dates will be followed by an even more extensive tour which is planned for 2023.

Wirral Globe:

Daniel Taylor (pictured, above)has previously played John Lennon in the award-winning Lennon Through A Glass Onion; Sammy in Blood Brothers and appeared at the very first Liverpool Theatre Festival in his show, The Very Best Of Tommy Cooper.

Daniel told the Globe: "After all his achievements, George is still one of the most underrated songwriters that has ever lived, and this is a perfect chance to celebrate and shine a spotlight on his musical genius."

Something About George is written by Jon Fellowes, who co-produces show alongside Liverpool-born singer songwriter Gary Edward Jones and theatre producer Bill Elms.
