At the Bruce Spizer presentation I went to, he said The Fool On The Hill was amazing, so I'm really looking forward to hearing that.

From Billboard: No One Plays a Beatles Song Quite Like a Beatle

No one plays a Beatles song quite like a Beatle. That lesson was learned Monday night when a reunion of Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr concluded a tribute to the Beatles entitled "The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles" that CBS will air on Feb. 9, the 50th anniversary of their first appearance on “The Ed Sullivan Show.” They still can't be topped.

note: I moved this here from the news thread since it seems to fit here better.

That will be 3am in the morning in the UK. First the Superbowl and then this.

Anyone know if a UK channel will be screening it at a more suitable hour?

This week-end, the canopy of the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York says something like "TONITE: THE BEATLES!" along with whatever it said 50 years ago this week-end. Maybe someone can find a picture; I don't know that I'll have time to go down and take one.

Is this it?

from the article

To mark the anniversary, the studio, which now houses the “Late Show With David Letterman,” unveiled a special marquee duplicating the one displayed at the Ed Sullivan Theater on the night the Beatles first performed.

The marquee has the exact same wording that was posted for “The Ed Sullivan Show” on Feb. 9, 1964 and will be on display through the weekend.

Meanwhile, a large piece of stage backdrop autographed by the Beatles during that historic performance is headed to auction, where it could draw $800,000 to $1 million.

Nice to see Georgia Brown and Tessie O'Shea getting some much needed publicity after all these years! a-hard-days-night-george-10

 

Seriously though, I can't wait to see the special. Hopefully I'll be able to watch it live...

* New York Times story on Debbie Gendler, who was in the audience.

* Another NYT story on the grandson of Ed Sullivan, Vincent Precht, who met them in Miami.

No idea. It would be good if they do, though.

Thoughts?

Overall, I'd give it a 9 over 10.

Liked: the different harmonies in 'I Want to HYH' as played on Ed Sullivan (as compared to the recording; pretty nervy to change things at that point in time. Same for "All My Loving" (not in the show tonight)) The interviews with the people working the Ed Sullivan show that week-end. The way they used snippets  of the Ed Sullivan performances here and there. The stage design during McCartney's set at the end. The entire McCartney performance. Imagine Dragon's "Revolution". Yoko dancing (and you know my feelings about her). 

Disliked: Annie Lenox singing "Fool On the Hill" (+ did not care for her look). The first guitar solo on "While My Guitar GW" (where was E Clapton?). Did Ringo have to sing 'Boys'?

I thought it was wonderful.  I liked most of the performances, though I thought "Let It Be" was kind of boring, but I think I was getting impatient and just wanted them to get to Paul and Ringo, lol.

I really enjoyed all the interviews with everyone and the little bio pieces they did for all four of them were nice, too.

Paul and Ringo were great as always.  Ringo was running and jumping around like he's still in his twenties, and Paul sounded great as usual.  I loved it.

How could I ever have lost you when I loved you?

I loved it!heartheart

There were parts I didn't like: Imagine Dragons and Katy Perry. Katy sounded a bit airy/breathy, which kind of popular for a lot of artist now a days. 

I loved the mini bios, several of the other performances, Paul and Ringo's performances, and Yoko and Ringo's dancing. 

I was a bit impatient at times as well.a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

I was kind of dreading Katy Perry, even though I do like a lot of her music.  I just didn't know if her style would suit a Beatles song, but I thought she did a beautiful job considering how different her style of music is to The Beatles.
