Eurythmics Set to Perform on the Beatles Tribute Night
The dance-rock duo of Annie Lenox and Dave Stewart – who released nine albums together before parting ways in 1999 – will reunite later this month at the Los Angeles Convention Centre to deliver special homage to the Fab Four in a special program titled "The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles." The event will take place just a day after the actual Grammy Awards show.
Eurythmics last performed together in 2006. Their final studio album came in 1999 although they did make some fresh music in 2005 and released it as part of their Ultimate Collection disc.
Last month, the two stars hinted of a 'surprise performance' through their official Facebook page, and now it seems they could have been talking about this post-Grammy reunion. In addition to this British pair, artists such as John Mayer, Keith Urban, Alicia Keys, John Legend and Maroon 5 are expected to honor the great quartet out of Liverpool.
"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," Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich said of Eurythmics' selection for the night.
The show will air on CBS on February 9 – the date on which exactly fifty years ago the Beatles became known to the American audience throught the Ed Sullivan show.
Ehrlich continued: "They [the Beatles] 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."
