A Beatles Reunion? In Victoria, Texas??
I've been a fan of the Beatles since I was about 6 or 7 years old (which was right at the peak of their most creative period, 1966-1968). This coming February 9th will mark fifty years since their first American television performance on the Ed Sullivan Show. in 1964. Now, it would appear the two surviving members will reunite for a special performance, as reported by RadarOnline.com:
Forty-three years after the Beatles broke up, sending millions of teen fans into a tailspin, the last surviving members are reportedly planning another walk down Abbey Road in a surprise reunion show!
Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr are in talks to perform on the Late Show with David Letterman in early February, according to Showbiz411.com. And it’s not just a random reunion: Letterman’s show is filmed at the Ed Sullivan Theater, where the band first performed on American soil 50 years ago, on February 9, 1964.
“The plan is that the Letterman show will make the entire week of February 3 a Beatles spectacular,” the report by Showbiz411.com claims.
I, along with millions of other Beatles fans, can't wait to see this! And if you'd like to experience the next best thing to the Beatles in person, don't miss "1964" The Tribute at the Victoria Fine Arts Center on February 28th. 1964 The Tribute has been named by Rolling Stone magazine as the "Best Beatles tribute on earth," and as someone who has memorized nearly every sound on the Beatles' recordings, I can absolutely agree! I've seen this act at least twice in years past, and they are amazing! They really capture the sound and energy of the Fab Four! The show is being presented by the Victoria ISD Education Foundation to benefit the Fine Arts department.
