Watch Jane’s Addiction’s Perry Farrell perform a Beatles classic

Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell is one of the musicians who honored George Harrison at a concert recorded for an upcoming live concert video and live album, “George Fest: A Night to Celebrate the Music of George Harrison.” At the show, Ferrell rocked a cover of the Beatles song “Here Comes the Sun,” which Harrison penned. Farrell’s performance of “Here Comes the Sun” is streaming now via YouTube.

George Fest took place last September. Joining Farrell as performers at the tribute show were Heart’s Ann Wilson, the Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson, the Killers’ Brandon Flowers and the Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne. Other entertainment came from members of Weezer, the Strokes, Spoon, Cold War Kids and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. Harrison’s son, Dhani, also performed and co-produced the event.

“George Fest: A Night to Celebrate the Music of George Harrison” will arrive on Feb. 26, which is one day after what would have marked Harrison’s 73rd birthday.
