Concert For Bangladesh: How George Harrison formed the first ever all-star benefit rock...

Friday, September 22, 2023

The Concert For Bangladesh was arguably the first ever benefit rock concert.

A star-studded relief concert that transformed how people perceived musicians at the time, no longer were rock stars simply countercultural outsiders indulging in life's many excesses.

After George Harrison put together the historic concert, wider society realised that musicians weren't mere celebrities but also had the power to make genuine change.

The event brought together icons of the era that nobody had ever witnessed before, and also brought two former members of The Beatles together on stage for the first time in five years.
