Watch Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers perform I Need You from Concert For George.

The film made of the August 1, 1971 concerts in New York's Madison Square Garden to raise relief funds for Bangladesh was given a deluxe reissue on this two-disc DVD, one disc of which contains the original film, the other offering extra features. Organized by George Harrison and also featuring spots by Bob Dylan, Billy Preston, Leon Russell, and Ravi Shankar, the concert itself might not quite match the expectations some fans might have for such a star-studded lineup.
It also offers a 12 x 12 hard-bound 60-page book and the unique opportunity to own a piece of the historic, all-star concert, with a cutting from the original hand-painted on-stage tapestry that was used as the backdrop for the event.
