Letterman Trying to Arrange Paul and Ringo Reunion
David Letterman is planning a special version of Late Night as part of NBC's week long celebration of Beatlemania. If all goes according to plan, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr will perform live on the special program.
The special show, tentatively scheduled for February 7th, will be a more than fitting place to hold the mini-reunion since Late Night is taped at The Ed Sullivan Theater where the Beatles first performed to a huge nationwide audience when they came to conquer America.
The week of Feb. 3 to 7 is being touted as a "Beatles spectacular" on Letterman's show.
CBS is also airing the Grammy special on Feb. 9 -- the exact same day that the Beatles made their debut U.S. TV appearance in 1964, effectively kicking off Beatlemania. Just a couple of weeks before the big anniversary, the group's original U.S. albums will be collected in a new box set.
