Keith Urban, John Mayer to Take Part in Grammy Beatles Tribute
The two musicians will take the stage for the televised ‘The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles.’ The show, which will air on Feb. 9 at 8PM on CBS, will fall exactly 50 years after the English band made their first appearance on ‘The Ed Sullivan Show,’ which jump-started their legendary career in the US.
Other artists taking the stage for the star-studded event include a reunion of Annie Lenox and Dave Stewart as the Eurythmics, Alicia Keys, Maroon 5 and John Legend. More artists are expected to be announced shortly.
In addition to the live music, the evening will also include footage of some of the most memorable moments in the history of the Beatles.
‘The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles’ will tape at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Monday, Jan. 27, one night after the Grammy Awards. Tickets are available for purchase here.
This is not the first time Urban and Mayer are sharing the spotlight. They previously performed together for a CMT Crossroads special, as well as for a benefit for the Tiger Woods Foundation and the Eric Clapton Crossroads festival, where they jammed on the Beatles’ ‘Don’t Let Me Down.’
