Surviving the Beatles members Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr have officially confirmed a partial reunion of the iconic act, marking 50 years of the band's first New York landing back in February 1964.

Despite the initial rumors of a reunion taking place at this year's Grammy Awards ceremony, the concert has been scheduled for January 27 as a part of "The Night That Changed America: A Grammys Salute to the Beatles" event.

As Hollywood Access reports, the special will air on CBS on February 9, marking yet another anniversary - 50 years of the Beatles' legendary Ed Sullivan Show performance.

"To celebrate the 50 years since we landed in New York in February [1964], they are putting on a big show on Monday and we will be doing it there," Starr commented after receiving Lifetime of Peace & Love Award by the David Lynch Foundation in Los Angeles.

As for the Grammys 2014, both McCartney and Starr will perform, but separately. The ceremony is scheduled to take place on January 26 at Los Angeles Staples Center.

    Exciting! Both of them are still ace musicians, and I cannot wait to see how they play off of eachother.

    Ringo isn't, and never was an "Ace" musician.

    This whole attitude about Ringo is bullshit. Yeah, he's no Keith Moon, but the Beatles was never a band that needed a Keith Moon. Ringo played what the song needed, not whatever he wanted to massage his ego.

    agreed. as a drummer, what you DON'T play can often often be much more important than what you do

    I like how Ringo looks like he's moved on from the 60s but Paul's just kept the shirts and haircut for all these years.

    Nice to hear that having been some days in preparation a splendid time is guaranteed for all. Such a shame Sid Bernstein won't be here to see it.

    "Despite the initial rumors of a reunion taking place at this year's Grammy Awards ceremony, the concert has been scheduled for January 27 as a part of "The Night That Changed America: A Grammys Salute to the Beatles" event." So for all other thick people out there - they will play separately at the Grammys and then together as a band on The Night That Changed America: A Grammys Salute to the Beatles
