Grammys & More to Celebrate 50th Anniversary of BEATLES Arrival in U.S.
According to Showbiz411's Roger Friedman, two celebrations are taking shape to commemorate the 50th anniversary of The Beatles arrival on U.S. soil. Drummer Ringo Starr confirmed to Friedman last evening that in addition to a special segment to air during this year's Grammy Awards, another event is scheduled to take place The Following evening.
The Grammy Awards, airing on January 26th, will feature a special commemoration of the Fab 4's arrival in America on February 7, 1964. Then, on The Following evening, January 27, there will be a special Beatles show in Los Angeles at the Convention Center. According to the report, the show will "entail a lot of different acts playing Beatles songs." Ringo shared that currently, he and fellow surviving group member Paul McCartney have discussed only the "possibility" of their participation. "It's not like we're not going to do it," he told Friedman. "But it might be cool to have all these other bands doing our stuff, and we're watching."
Ringo's All Starr Band is currently touring in South America. He has also been busy promoting his new book of Beatles pictures aptly entitled "Photograph." For more information on the book, click here. An ebook version of "Photograph" is currently available on iTunes for $12.99.
