The tribute concert took place at the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles in September 2014, presented by The Best Fest, who had previously mounted similar events such as Dylan Fest, Petty Fest and Stones Fest. George’s evening raised money for Sweet Relief Musicians Fund, an organisation that helps professional musicians financially and with medical care.

Other featured artists at George Fest included Brian Wilson, Nick Valensi of the Strokes, Ann Wilson of Heart and TV personality Conan O’Brien. The audio and video will be available on 26 February (the day after George would have turned 73) on Hot/Vagrant. The DVD will also feature  interviews with the musicians backstage and at rehearsals, and the release will come in five formats: 2xCD/DVD, 2xCD/Blu-Ray, 3xLP (180 gram), digital and a store exclusive bundle.
