Ringo says he and old bandmate will duet on US TV special
It was previously reported that the pair would appear together at this year’s Grammy Awards in Los Angeles but, as Access Hollywood reports, drummer Starr has now revealed that he and McCartney will also perform for The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute To The Beatles.
The televised show will take place on January 27 – one day after this year’s Grammys and exactly 50 years after The Beatles played on The Ed Sullivan Show in the US. Starr said: “To celebrate the 50 years since we landed in New York in February , they are putting on a big show on Monday and we will be doing it there.”
It was previously revealed that Eurythmics will also reunite to pay tribute to the Fab Four as part of the TV special. Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart went on hiatus in 2005 and have not released a studio album in 1999.
Both McCartney and Starr has been nominated for a number of Grammy awards, with the bassist up for gongs including Best Rock Song for ‘Cut Me Some Slack’ with Dave Grohl and Krist Noveselic, whilst Starr will be honoured with the 2014 Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award at the ceremony.
