A new music show highlighting the incredible talent of the late Beatle George Harrison is set to embark on a national tour after being premiered in Liverpool – and it’s stopping in South Cumbria.

Something About George – The George Harrison Story, which pays tribute to the man dubbed the “quiet Beatle”, was met with acclaim by both audiences and critics when it closed the Liverpool Theatre Festival last September.

Now West End performer and musician Daniel Taylor is set to take the show on the road on a seven-date tour this summer ahead of a two-week residency at the Edinburgh Fringe.

The show is set to stop at The Beggar’s Theatre in Millom on June 11.

Daniel Taylor said: “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.”

Co-producer Gary Edward Jones added: “It’s now 20 years since George Harrison passed away – but his remarkable story and timeless music lives on.

“We feel privileged to be able to highlight the legacy he left behind. We’re excited to share this journey with audiences on this inaugural UK tour and are sure they will leave the show knowing more about George and his incredible life.
