A public gathering to celebrate the 70th birthday of George Harrison will take place on Monday, February 25 at George's Hollywood Walk of Fame star in front of the Capitol Records tower building in Hollywood.
The celebration, originally planned this year for February 24, is being held on Monday, February 25 due to logistical considerations regarding the Academy Awards ceremonies taking place on Sunday. Some claim George was born on February 24, others say it was February 25. George always said it was February 25.
The special event is free to the public. Fans of George Harrison and the Beatles are invited to bring candles and flowers to place around Harrison's star. The highlight of the event will be a public cake-cutting ceremony at 6:30 PM led by Chris Carter, radio host of Breakfast With the Beatles.
Fans at the event will also be invited to sign a large "George Harrison 70th Birthday Message Card", which will be sent to George's wife Olivia Harrison.
Jerry Rubin, one of the organizers of the event, said, "It would be a good thing for fans, wherever they may be, to play George Harrison and Beatles songs and share some birthday cake with friends and family on both days in loving remembrance of 'the quiet Beatle' on his special 70th birthday."
The event takes place Monday, February 25, 2013, George Harrison's 70th birthday, at 6:00PM (until 8:00PM), at George Harrison's Hollywood Walk of Fame Star in front of the Capitol Records tower building, which is located at 1750 N. Vine Street in Los Angeles.
