Beatles 50 is getting an enormous push this week. Suppliers tell that CBS’s special scheduled with regard to February 9th–and becoming taped this Thursday at the Los Angeles Convention Center– could end up staying three hours prolonged.
Right now the show–which will Fifty years to the day that this Beatles debuted on American TV on CBS’ohydrates “Ed Sullivan Show”–is set via 8 to 10 pm. The Eurythmics are re-uniting for the situation, and contemporary musicians are lined up to execute Beatles songs.
But Paul McCartney along with Ringo Starr, as well as some other unannounced guests, will be around the bill. And frankly, if Paul plus Ringo wanted to do some sort of hours’ worth of Beatles songs, everyone would be very very delighted indeed.
McCartney and Starr also are performing on the Grammys upon Sunday night, Present cards 26th as well. Is undoubtedly Saturday afternoon they shall be there with Yoko Ono and Olivia Harrison at the Grammys’ Special Benefit ceremony to receive their very own Lifetime Achievement Funds.
And there’s more: the two Paul and Ringo will be required on David Letterman in “Beatles Week” February 3rd that will 7th.
And even more: A 92nd St Y around New York is internet hosting a special evening on February 6th, moderated by Beatles pro Martin Lewis, featuring Peter Asher, Donovan, Billy L. Kramer, Freda Kelly (the Beatles’ secretary). That is one situation not to be neglected! www.92y.org/beatles.
Plus of course last week Capitol released a package set of the Beatles’ US album releases. I’ve seen some critique of the set on the amazon marketplace because they didn’t use the original crappy combinations from the original produces in the early 60s. Absurd. The whole point of George Martin’s 1987 remixes would be to fix all that stuff. He did it. We’concerning grateful for it.
