Eurythmics to reunite for Grammy Beatles tribute, for some reason

By | Published on Tuesday 7 January 2014


Dave Stewart and Annie Lennox are to reunite for the first time since 2005 later this month to mark the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ first appearance on ‘The Ed Sullivan Show’ in the US. Yeah, I don’t really understand it either, but I’m sure it’ll be just lovely. It’s something to do with The Grammys too.

A load of other people will also be performing Beatles covers at ‘The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute To The Beatles’ at the prestigious Los Angeles Convention Center West Hall on 27 Jan, the day after the Grammy Awards. It’ll then be broadcast in the US on 9 Feb in HD and 5.1 Surround Sound. So that’s real nice.

According to the press release, as well as performances from artists who have no obvious connection to The Beatles, beyond being musicians themselves, “various presenters will help highlight and contextualise the musical, cultural and historical impact of the group and this legendary performance”.

So, as I said, real nice.
