50 years ago four young men from Liverpool changed the world for the better. John, Paul, George, and Ringo hit the stage of “The Ed Sullivan Show” and America fell in love with “The Beatles”. Their performance kicked off the British music invasion in the US, and changed popular culture forever. Tonight CBS airs a special in conjuncture with the Grammy’s titled “The Beatles: The Night That Changed America – A Grammy Salute” to celebrate the 50 year anniversary of that landmark performance.
Check out the promo from CBS to see the bold names coming out to perform some of our favorite Beatles songs.
Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Alicia Keys, Maroon 5, The Eurythmics and other stars unite to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the date that the Beatles performed on the Ed Sullivan Show.
This year’s Grammy Awards featured a reunion of Ringo and Paul, with Ringo playing the drums while Paul played his new song Queenie Eye. While it wasn’t a classic Beatles song, it was still great to see the two legends back on stage together. Tonight’s special brings another opportunity for the world to once again catch Beatlemania.
