Are Paul and Ringo Reuniting?
Rumors were swirling that Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr were going to get back together to mark the 50th anniversary of their appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show and now, the rumor mill has stopped churning and suspicions have been confirmed.
The world changed the evening of February 9, 1964 when we were introduced to four young men from Liverpool, England. They called themselves the Beatles. They were handsome, fun loving, played guitar and wrote catchy songs. Most young girls across the nation were infected with something called Beatlemania and there was no cure.
Fast forward 50 years, their music has stood the test of time and we are readying to celebrate that momentous occasion in TV history with a tribute to the event called The Night That Changed America. Of course, a few pieces of the puzzle are missing: George Harrison, John Lennon and the man himself, Ed Sullivan, but that’s not stopping a star studded group from the celebrations.
Yoko Ono and Olivia Harrison will take part, as will some of the top entertainers in the industry today as well as Paul McCartney and Ringo Starrwill be on hand to perform the same five songs the Beatles played that night on the program and it will air at the exact same moment in time 50 years after the original. The show will be recorded on Monday, January 27, one day after the 56th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony.
