In response to BuzzJirk, George played 4 shows in Los Angeles County. The first show was in Long Beach and the other three were at the Fprum. It was the Long Beach show that epople went nuts althiugh he was still well received at the forum
Do you happen to know which show Clapton joined in on?
Iused to have a bootleg called dead stick that I still can hear in my head because the playing was so full of emotiom as this may have been the first time they played together since Clapton married Georges' wife!

Dec 19 1974 at MSG. Started with great energy playing Hari's on Tour and then, ugh!, In My Life. He was also harrassing the crowd about smoking reefer. Got to the point that the crowd was shouting back when he started the "If you loved God as much as reefer....". He only played 9 songs, unlike the 20+ in Baton Rouge. His voice was shot but in places was great (Dark Horse was awesome) but then after 4 songs we had an hour plus of Indian music.It's still special that I got to see him and 36 years later, I'd do it all over again.

Saw the late show at Olympia Stadium in Detroit, and while I struggled to get into the Indian music, George and the others were great. I sat in the front row, and I remember George looked really
thin ( and sick ). Nevertheless, he put on a great show I'll never forget. Thanks George!

I was at the shows on the 11th and 12th at the Inglewood Forum, I was 19 and enjoyed every second of both shows. I still have a ticket, full unused, to one of the shows.

It was special to say the least...and the ticket was only $8,,,can you believe it,,,,I have since paid over $200 to see McCartney. I recently found my old ticket stub to sadly see the concert date was Dec 8. Six years later, John would be dead. How ironic that my most cherished day in my own Beatles history would also be the worst.

Don't forget Billy Preston knocking out a stupendous Nothing From Nothing number and Ravi Shankar opening with a 90 minute set. My very first big concert.

I saw one of the shows at the Fabulous Forum in Inglewood in 1974. I understand that there was more than one show, but I don't remember the date of the one I saw. There are three things I do vividly remember about the show I attended. First, there were quite a few empty seats that night. Second, I remember prior to the show starting, a commotion and then applause up near the stage as Ringo and his date took their seats. Finally, I do remember George's voice being very hoarse that night. In fact, it kind of ruined the experience for me. Of course, it didn't change my love of his music at all. I am still a big fan and really looking forward to Martin Scorcese's documentary "Living In The Material World" tonight on HBO.

I was at the November 20th 1974 Show at the St. Louis Arena. I was watching the 2011 released documentary and it brought back the memories of what a great show that was!! Glad I am able to say I saw George in concert!!

I was fortunate enough to catch the 74' tour in Tucson, Arizona. I don't remember him having any vocal problems. But I do remember being bored to death with Ravi's set. Also remember several concert goers wearing the infamous "look a like" brown fur coat he wore on the Apple rooftop session.Heading to the Grammy Museum next week to see the Harrison exhibit.

Would you be interested in selling your ticket?

I saw the concert in Montreal. People there were quite enthusiastic & warm toward George & friends. Ravi got polite applause mostly. The only hostility I saw came from George toward the concert goers! "It's great to be back in Montreal" he said with obvious sarcasm. Still, it was a very enjoyable concert.

I was at the Long Beach show. It was a benefit for the Hare Krishnas. The spectacle of all the Krishnas in their full color garb dancing in big circles on the open floor made the long Ravi Shankar sets a little more bearable for a teenager. When George came back and just started playing- it was one of the most awesome shows I can remember.

Hello . this was my first concert ever .. I live in Burnaby BC .. so I took a bus . over to East Vancouver to the Pacific Coliseum... got in line early as it was still festival seating .. early birds got the best floor seats .. so I was on the floor . a little scared . watching . this kind of hippy crowd smoke their dope ..and i remember them making a paper airplane and sailing it right into this bald guys head . and everyone laughed !!!.. I remmeber Ravi Shankars set .. and Ravi asking us to focus and be quiet . Also Billy Preston doing Ntohing from Nothing , and Will it go round in Circles ... also . That kick ass horn section of Tom Scot and the LA Express ... I rememeber Georges voice being very hoarse .and him saying to the crowd . I dont know how you sound down there . but you sound pretty dead up here !.. afterwards . I walked along by the racetrack towards Empire Stadium to the East of the PNE grounds .. to walk by where The Beatles played the Stadium back in Aug 1964 and lo and behold ! Georges black limousine drove right by me ... I guess he / they also wanted to see where they played all those years ago .. I could see George in the back of the limo . ok . thats my story . anyone able to make me a copy of the Vancouver show .. I would be grateful to . I may have a copy of all 4 autographs you may like in return . thanks so much .. Steve Jensen [email protected]

Wow so many lucky people on here got to see George in concert in 1974. I had the album and George's voice was hoarse but the music was still good. It's a pity the Traveling Wilburys never toured.

Folks, Giles Martin stated recently in an interview that the proposed George live in 1974 cd/dvd will not be released as planned.
Olivia allowed some of the fooage and music to be used in the Scorsese film, but then decided as a whole it would not be a selling item, in other words, wouldn't portray George in a good light.
New fans might hear this and walk away, so as of right now, the 74' tour project is cancelled, all according to Giles Martin.

I was at the Philly show. I remember Ravi Shankar was ill and didn't perform, though his band did. I loved George, though his voice was hoarse. His Beatles songs got louder applause. I also was just a litte bothered by his changing Lennon's lyrics to "In My Life" I also recall that Billy Preston really rocked and kind of stole the show. I had a great time that night at the Spectrum.
