Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr to perform together for special show
It's the event music fans have been waiting for and it's finally happening: the two surviving members of The Beatles - Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr - will join forces to perform together once again.
The pair will reunite for a performance at the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday 26 January. They will also record a one-off special show at The Ed Sullivan Theatre the following day, as it has been 50 years since the British group made their legendary debut appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show.
Ringo discussed the news with Access Hollywood: "To celebrate the 50 years since we landed in New York in February (1964), they are putting on a big show on Monday and we will be doing it there."
And, as well as performing at the ceremony, Paul and Ringo will be honoured with the Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award.
It's hard to believe that half a century has gone by since the world's most famous British band changed the face of music. Let's look back at the top moments from their career in pictures...
I remember the day the Beatles played the Ed Sullivan show in 1964. I was 12 years old, soon to be 13 in a couple of months. My life changed forever. The first album I ever purchased was Twist and Shout and it cost $4.20 (a lot of money then, as minimum wage was under $1.00 per hour! My favourite was Paul and I would have done anything to get to see them in person. Alas, it was not to be. I have most of their albums, but I never seen them play live. In 1965, I came into Winnipeg with a friend and her father, specifically to attend the screen of "A Hard Day's Night". It was such a special privilege. Of course, 50 years have passed and I still think fondly of those times. Even though the world was changing, there still was such a lovely innocent and hopeful quality to the times. Now, everyone is so cynical and jaded, that all the wonder and discovery seems to have been sapped from peoples lives. Perhaps people still have wonder in their lives, but now they have to do it at lightening speed.

Somehow guys, I think that you'd managed to do that not too many years earlier.
