Ringo Starr has confirmed that he will reunite with former Beatles bandmate Paul McCartney to celebrate the group’s 50-year anniversary since the group landed in the country. According to Access Hollywood on Jan. 21, the performance will not take place at the Grammys this weekend as first speculated.

Starr and McCartney, the only two remaining members, will perform on the Monday after the Grammys. The event, “The Night That Changed America: A Grammys Salute to The Beatles, will not actually air on CBS until February 9, marking the exact date that the group appeared on “The Ed Sullivan Show.”

Ringo Starr told 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.”

Thus far, this has already been a memorable year for Ringo Starr. Not only is he reuniting with McCartney in celebration of 50 year anniversary of the British invasion, he also received the Lifetime of Peace & Love Award, an honor awarded by The David Lynch Foundation in Los Angeles.

Both Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney are scheduled to perform at the Grammys on Sunday, but not together.
