The four Beatles stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame will be decorated with flowers and Beatles mementos at a free public event Feb. 9 on the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' first live performance on American television on "The Ed Sullivan Show," organizer Jerry Rubin said this week. The anniversary event will take place at 1 p.m. Feb. 9 at the stars for John Lennon, George Harrison, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, which are all located side by side in front of the Capitol Records tower at 1750 N. Vine St. in Hollywood, CA.

The special event will be held in support of the "NYC FAB 50" events taking place to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Beatles arrival in the U.S. and the explosion of Beatlesmania.

The Feb. 9 event will feature a special guest Ed Sullivan impersonator to welcome Beatles fans and a specially decorated 'Beatles 50' anniversary cake cut by Chris Carter, weekly radio host of "Breakfast With the Beatles" on KLOS-FM. Pieces of the cake will be distributed to all the Beatles fans in attendance. Guest musicians and singers will perform the Beatles songs throughout the afternoon event. Admission is free.
