The 'For George' tribute opened in early August in his native Liverpool, England. And on display were memorabilia and rare artefacts from the musician's career. However, the organisers of the event had to shut the gallery after one of the prized exhibits, worth 1,600 dollars, was stolen by a visitor.
"I want to make it clear that 10,000 people have seen this exhibition and it is only one person who has done this. I do not want it to end on a negative note," Contactmusic quoted Denise Theophilus, who helped put together the event, as saying.
