Ringo Starr has confirmed -- vaguely -- that he and Paul McCartney will reunite musically for CBS's "The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles," which will be filmed on January 27 for broadcast on February 9 -- the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' first performance on "The Ed Sullivan Show."
Asked if the two will play together after receiving the David Lynch Foundation's Peace and Love Award, Starr told Access Hollywood that, "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" -- not exactly a rousing confirmation, as Starr didn't say exactly what "it" would be. Nevertheless, it's as solid as any other information emanating from the Beatles camp.
The special will also feature performances of Beatles songs by Eurythmics, Maroon5, Keith Urban and Alicia Keys, among others.
McCartney and Starr will be performing separately at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 26), where the Beatles will receive a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. The two are also rumored to be appearing together on the February 7 episode of CBS' "Late Night with David Letterman."
