The Concert for Bangladesh, a pair of benefit concerts organized by Harrison and sitar master Ravi Shankar, were held at NYC's Madison Square Garden on August 1, 1971. They were attended by over 40,000 people and raised over $250,000 for Bangladesh relief, funds designed to assist refugees from East Pakistan following the Bangladesh Liberation War-related genocide. Although Ringo Starr was the only other Beatle to attend, the concerts included many willing and legendary musicians, including Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Billy Preston, Leon Russell, and Badfinger.
