Euryhmics Reuniting To Pay Tribute To The Beatles
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.06.2014

Billboard reports that the Eurythmics, best known for their songs "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" and "Would I Lie To You", will reunite to pay tribute to the Beatles. The Recording Academy announced that Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart will perform together for The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute To The Beatles. The event will be taped at the Los Angeles Convention Center on January 27, a day after the Grammy Awards.

Ken Ehrlich, producer of the Grammys and the Beatles special, said: "When it came around to booking this show, what I felt was important was to try and find those artists who not only would be able to interpret Beatles songs, but would also have an ... understanding of what they meant."

The Euryhtmics sold millions of albums starting with their debut in 1981. Ehrlich said that both Stewart and Lennox after excited to perform the tribute, but he didn't say which song they would perform. John Mayer and Keith Urban will team up for "Don't Let Me Down" while Alicia Keys and John Legend will perform "Let It Be". Maroon 5 will also perform.

The special will air on February 9 on CBS, fifty years to the day that the Beatles made their US debut on The Ed Sullivan Show. An estimated 73 million viewers watched that event, which is one of the world's top cultural moments.

Ehrlich added: "They really did change people's lives, so what I'm hoping this show ... gets across is the message that occasionally in history we are touched by certain artists who have a profound effect on us beyond just the music that they make."

It's unknown if Paul McCartney or Ringo Starr will be in attendance for the tribute, even though the band will be given a lifetime achievement award two days earlier at the Recording Academy's Special Merit Awards in Los Angeles. The special will feature around a dozen performances, with more being announced later.
