Arctic Monkeys cover Beatles' 'All My Loving' at Madison Square Garden gig

Last night, Brit rockers the Arctic Monkeys helped celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Beatles' first performance on the Ed Sullivan show with a gorgeous cover of "All My Loving" at their Madison Square Garden tour stop. It was 50 years ago today, February 9, that Paul, Ringo, John, and George walked onto the Ed Sullivan Theater stage in front of 74 million television viewers and changed the course of music history forever.

Alex Turner and co. turned the Beatles' traditionally uptempo "All My Loving" into a slow burning, love ballad that was a welcomed departure from the original. This particularly song was in fact the first song that the Beatles performed on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964, so it was especially moving to see another deservedly popular British five piece to bring history full circle. They even enlisted the help of The Last Shadow Puppets' co-frontman Miles Kane for the cover, as well as a few other songs throughout their brilliant set. Some of the setlist included cult-classics like "I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor," a reworked version of "Fluorescent Adolescent" and nine cuts from their fantastic new record "AM."

The celebration of US Beatlemania continues tonight with "The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles" on CBS at 8 p.m. EST.
