Paul McCartney And Ringo Starr May Stage Beatles Reunion On 'Late Show With David Letterman'

Monday, January 13, 2014

Fifty years after an iconic performance at the Ed Sullivan Theater, the surviving members of The Beatles could stage a reunion in the same venue where the magic began. Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr are in talks with producers from "The Late Show with David Letterman," which films in the Ed Sullivan Theater, to stage a reunion on the show, according to Showbiz411.

Early reports pinpoint the first week of February as a potential Beatles blowout week for "The Late Show," with McCartney and Starr potentially appearing on Friday, Feb. 7, the day the group arrived in the United States in 1964. What the rest of Letterman's weeklong extravaganza would include has yet to be revealed. There's no doubt an endless number of artists who'd jump at the opportunity to cover a Beatles classic on the program, and the show could also recruit survivors who were associated with the band: Yoko Ono, original manager Allan Williams, original drummer Pete Best, "A Hard Day's Night" director Richard Lester, plus George Harrison's and John Lennon's children (Dhani Harrison, Julian and Sean Lennon). CBS and "Late Show" producers are currently in negotiations, according to reports. The potential reunion would air the week before the Feb. 9 CBS special that commemorates The Beatles' Ed Sullivan performance in New York.
