Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr Could Reunite on "David Letterman": Report


The burgeoning celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Beatles arrival in the U.S. may include another joint TV appearance by surviving Mop Tops Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.

Showbiz 411 reports that the two may show up on CBS' "The Late Show with David Letterman" on February 7 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Beatles landing at JFK International Airport.

The unconfirmed appearance would cap a full week dedicated to the Beatles by "The Late Show," which films at the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York, where the Beatles made their first U.S. TV appearance on February 9.

No other details about the special week have been announced, and it's unclear whether McCartney and Starr would perform or merely appear as guests. The two have already confirmed they -- along with Yoko Ono and Olivia Harrison -- will take part in "The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles," which will be taped January 27 in Los Angeles and air on February 9 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Beatles's first appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show."

On January 21, meanwhile, the Beatles' U.S. albums will be released in a 13-disc box set and individually.
