DVR Alert: Letterman to Host Full Week of Beatles Tributes

The Beatles’ arrival to America is widely attributed to their first appearance on the Ed Sullivan show, so it’s only fitting that David Letterman (whose Late Show shoots in the same physical space—The Ed Sullivan Theater—where the Beatles performed 50 years ago) will host a full week of Beatles tributes.

 



Performances will include Broken Bells to play “And I Love Her” on Feb. 3, Sting will cover “Drive My Car” on Feb. 4, Lenny Kravitz will perform on Feb. 5, and Flaming Lips (joined by Sean Lennon) will perform “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” on Feb. 6. The final lineup for Friday, Feb. 7 will be announced later this week.

CBS already taped and released the performance lineup for The Grammy's Beatles tribute special, but The Night That Changed America: A GRAMMY Salute to the Beatles will officially air on television on Sunday, Feb. 9, at 7pm, which is exactly 50 years to the day, date and time of Ed Sullivan show moment half a century ago.
