When we asked Dave Stewart if he and Annie Lennox would ever reunite the Eurythmics, he told us, “We’ve never said we would never work together again.” Now, news comes that they will, in fact, be sharing the stage for one night only.
The Eurythmics are among the first performers announced for The Night That Changed America: A GRAMMY Salute To The Beatles which will be recorded the night after the GRAMMYs on Monday, Jan. 27. The program will be broadcast exactly 50 years to the day of the Beatles‘ debut performance on The Ed Sullivan Show, Sunday, February 9, (8 p.m., live ET/delayed PT) on CBS.
This is the first time Stewart and Lennox have played in front of an audience since the release of their greatest hits album Ultimate Collection in 2005.
Other performers announced for the Beatles tribute include Alicia Keys and John Legend, who will perform together, as well as John Mayer, Keith Urban and Maroon 5. Last year, Mayer and Urban covered the Beatles’ “Don’t Let Me Down” together at Eric Clapton’s Crossroads festival in New York City.
Watch the 56th Annual GRAMMY Awards on January 26 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
