Shock and Surprise: Macca and Ringo to Take On New York

It’s Super Bowl week in New York.  We’re coming up to the 50th anniversary of the Beatles Ed Sullivan Show appearance.  Their Grammy appearance went over well.  And music sales are in the shitter.  What better way to drum up some business than to keep the Beatles reunion(ish) thing going?  From Billboard:

Paul McCartney is scheduled to be in New York for the Super Bowl and if all goes according to schedule, he and Ringo Starr will make their way early next week to the Ed Sullivan Theater, where they made their American television debut 50 years ago.The two surviving Beatles will be interviewed by David Letterman for the CBS special, “The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles,” that airs Feb. 9.

Keep going.
