The best version of While My Guitar Gently Weeps, end of discussion

I've posted two versions of this Beetles classic. The first one from the Concert for George, with Eric Clapton on lead, Paul McCarthy on piano, and Ringo Starr on drums (plus several other fantastic artists). Also, a version from the Rock in Roll Hall of Fame, with Tom Petty on lead, and finished with a two minute guitar solo from Prince. Both, incredible, but I think this version tops both.

I found it by pure accident looking on YouTube, it's from 1987, and the list of artists on this stage:

George Harrison: Voice & Guitar
Eric Clapton: Guitar
Jeff Lyne: Guitar
Phil Collins: Drums
Ringo Starr: Drums
Ray Cooper: Percussion
Mark King: Bass
Elton John: Piano
Jool Holland: Piano

There is more musical talent on that list than there is in music today. Enjoy! And have a great weekend!
