David Letterman's Big Beatle Week
American popular culture was altered forever 50 years ago Sunday (February 9, 2014) when four mop-topped lads from England hit the stage at the Ed Sullivan Theatre in Manhattan. More than 73 million people watched in glorious black and white. A half-century later, the two surviving Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr returned for a chat with the room’s current occupant David Letterman. Watch HERE & HERE
The ‘Late Show with David Letterman’ also celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Beatles‘ arrival in America with a week of programming dedicated to the group.
Monday (February 3, 2014), indie band Broken Bells performed ‘And I Love Her.’ The next night (Tuesday February 4, 2014) it was Sting, singing ‘Drive My Car.’ Wednesday (February 5, 2014) featured the Flaming Lips, with special guest Sean Lennon on ‘Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds,’ and Lenny Kravitz delivered 'Get Back' on Thursday (February 6, 2014).
