The Concerts For Bangladesh took place on this day in 1971. Organized by George Harrison and his friend Ravi Shankar, it drew 40,000 fans at Madison Square Garden. The concerts were organized to raise awareness and fund relief efforts in Bangladesh following  the Bangladesh Atrocities ( war and floods).

The Concert For Bangladesh was one of the first of it’s kind and opened the door for other events to help those in need. It raised $250,000 for relief, administered by UNICEF. Unfortunately, the project was marred by financial problems, as well as political issues, and very little of the supplies and goods sent to Bangladesh were held by the government.

Performers at the concert were George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Billy Preston, Leon Russell, and Badfinger.
