40th anniversary of Concert for Bangladesh
It was 40 years ago this coming Monday -- Aug. 1, 1971 -- when former Beatle George Harrison and his friend Ravi Shankar put on two benefit concerts in New York. The mission was to call attention to, and raise money for, the people of Bangladesh, who faced floods, famine and civil war.
In commemoration of the 40th anniversary, "The Concert for Bangladesh" feature film will stream in its 90-minute entirety through 10:59 p.m. CDT Monday on georgeharrison.com.
