Australia gets the scoop on The Night That Changed America

By David Knox on November 15, 2013 / Filed Under Pay TV 3

2013-10-17_2219I note with interest that the Hollywood Reporter has now filed on the special marking 50 years since The Beatles first appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show, called The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles.

As previously reported here, this will take place the day after the Grammys.

But what the US press does not know -and we do- is who will appear at the concert.

Brian Walsh revealed all at the recent Foxtel Upfronts:

“An all-star line-up headed up by Sir Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono and George’s wife Olivia Harrison, along with some of the biggest names in music such as Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, Adele, Bruno Mars, P!nk and Katy Perry will gather to celebrate and perform the songs of The Beatles,” he said.

“What a show that will be. And it’s only on Foxtel next year.”

This screens in early February.

    I totally agree Matt F
    I only hope there are going to be actual “big names” that Mr. Walsh didn’t mention…

    “along with some of the biggest names in music such as Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, Adele, Bruno Mars, P!nk and Katy Perry”

    So we jump from The ’60s to the ’00s. There’s other bigger names in the middle somewhere between the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s and that are missing… sigh.
