Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart will perform together later this month to help celebrate the 50th Anniversary of The Beatles landing in America.
This unexpected Eurythmics reunion forms part of a US TV special called The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles, which will be broadcast on 9 February, 50 years to the day that the Fab Four performed on The Ed Sullivan Show.
Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich said: “When it came around to booking this show, what I felt was important was to try and find those artists who not only would be able to interpret Beatles songs, but would also have an understanding of what they meant.”
Ken may not have heard the Eurythmics ‘interpretation’ of Come Together which ended up on the 2005 reissue of Savage (it was previously unreleased at that time). It’s interesting, although in truth probably not suited to being ‘Savaged’. Lennox’s vocals never disappoint.
The Eurythmics’ last new material was issued on 2005’s Ultimate Collection. The same year saw the expanded CD reissues of all their albums (with the notable exception of the neglected masterpiece 1984 (For The Love Of Big Brother).
