If you are, were or aren’t yet a fan of the Fab Four, you should check into the Grammy® Awards show “The Night That Changed America: A GRAMMY® Salute to The Beatles“. If you recall that night 50 years ago when The Beatles first appeared on “The Ed Sullivan Show” on February 9, 1964. you remember how electric the atmosphere was. You remember the screaming fans and the lovable mop tops performing not one or two songs–but five numbers during the one-hour show. It really was a night that changed America.
The Beatles subsequently dominated the Top 40 record charts for years afterwards. They became musical innovators and the voice of a generation with their calls for peace in Vietnam. Their songs blared from pocket transistor radios and car radios across the United States. They inspired millions of kids to pick up a guitar and play, play, play.
The Beatles won seven GRAMMYs®, so it’s entirely appropriate that the show would be associated with the award show. This was, after all, one of the most historic live events in the history of television and music. The show is being taped on January 27, 2014, one day after the 56th Annual GRAMMY Awards®. The Recording Academy®, AEG Ehrlich Ventures and CBS will present “The Night That Changed America: A GRAMMY® Salute To The Beatles” in HD TV and 5.1 surround sound on February 9, from 8 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., just 12 days later. But you don’t have to wait for the broadcast. VIP Concierge has tickets to the extravaganza and the party beforehand. You can be there for the live taping of the show.
This isn’t your average tribute show. Many top musicians will be on hand to perform their renditions of the five songs that The Beatles played that night plus a few other classic rockers by the most classic rockers of them all. You’ll hear the two mini sets that The Beatles played, including.
- “All My Loving”
- “Till There Was You”
- “She Loves You”
- “I Saw Her Standing There”
- “I Want to Hold Your Hand”
The show will run for 2 hours, which is twice as long as the original show lasted.
