The Two Surviving Beatles, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, Will Reportedly Perform Together, But Not at the Grammys This Sunday as Previously Reported. Does Letterman Figure in This? Access Hollywood, Showbiz 411
"Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr are reuniting for what is sure to be a memorable performance," reports "Access Hollywood."
The story reports: "However, despite rumors, it will not be at this weekend’s Grammys. The former Beatles bandmates will perform together at 'The Night That Changed America: A Grammys Salute to The Beatles' on Monday, January 27, Ringo revealed to 'Access Hollywood' on Monday night."
It was widely reported last week that McCartney and Starr would perform together on the Grammys.
The "Access Hollywood" report also notes: "The special will air on CBS on February 9 -- 50 years to the date of the Beatles’ historic performance on “The Ed Sullivan Show.”
Will McCartney and Starr also perform on Letterman? Here's what the website Showbiz 411 says: "Letterman tapes at the Ed Sullivan Theater, where the Beatles made their American debut on February 9, 1964. The plan is that the Letterman show will make the entire week of February 3rd to the 7th a Beatles spectacular. They are talking to Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr about playing at least on one night, probably the Friday -- February 7th. That’s the day the group arrived in 1964."
CBS is also putting on a live symposium in connection with the Beatles anniversary, as we reported separately.
