“The FOR GEORGE show will always remain one of my favourite tribute shows. Not only because it was the first show we staged, but George’s music continues to remain fresh in the realm of pop music. His music continues to bring me much joy…. I have enjoyed what our city’s musicians have done in their interpretation of George’s music and I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us this year.” C.C.
