Dhani Harrison promises to tour with new band.

It looks like Beatle fans looking for some live music later this year may be in for a double feature.  We already know that Paul McCartney is rumored to be eyeing a tour for later this year.  Well, now we can add a Harrison tour to the mayhem.


Dhani Harrison will be taking his band thenewno2 on the road later this year.  It will be exciting to see his band.  The music is danceable, quirky, funny, as well as socially conscious.  It’s a perfect blend.  If you haven’t heard the band, and gotten their tracks from their release EP, or iTunes, I highly recommend it.  The similarities, I know we shouldn’t mention them, to his father are uncanny.  He sounds like his own artist finding his way though, and we really like what we hear.

Here’s a video to wet your appetite in the meantime.

Here’s what we’ve read.

Dhani Harrison is apparently set to follow in his father George Harrison’s footsteps with his band thenewo2.

The only son of the late Beatles guitarist formed the band with drummer Oliver Hecks and is hoping to wow industry bosses when he tours the States this year, reports the Daily Express.

The 29-year has already released new tracks on the internet and apparently wants to perform a series of live shows in the US.

A source told the paper: “Dhani isn’t a big attention seeker but it’s understood he hopes to go on the road in the autumn.

“Dhani will be keen to keep things low key and they’ll be playing small venues, but there’s bound to be a lot of interest.”

Fans will have high expectations of the singer, who co-produced and performed on his father’s album Brainwashed, which was released after his death in 2002.

He also performed alongside Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney and Eric Clapton at a tribute concert to his father at the Royal Albert Hall.

  1. His father, looking over him, must be so proud.

  2. I remember Sean Lennon did a tour last year. One show was about 100 miles away in the town where I went to college. I thought about going, but decided “Nah” since I wasn’t a *huge* Sean fan. I kind of regret that now. I hope Dhani plays somewhere reasonably near where I live since I would like to see him very much. Lo-key is good. They probably might play in bars and stuff.

  3. Im so excited for this tour!!!! I went to Sean’s show at St Andrews in Detroit last year Cynthia…..Amazing, you should have went to one.

  4. It was a dream come true to go to a Sean show for me, and I can’t wait till he tours again. So hoping Dhani comes to a city like Austin, Texas that’s quite near me… would be a perfect fit. ❤

  5. i think dhani should hook up with julian and sean and james mccarntey and zak starky and form B2 or B squared to form a beatles like group and record some new material to. and make that joke i read online a reality
