The duo consisting of singer Annie Lennox and musician Dave
Stewart, who last toured together in 2000, will play songs by
The Beatles in the January 27 concert organized by the Recording
Academy, which hands out the annual Grammy Awards.
They will also share the stage with R&B singers Alicia Keys and
John Legend and pop-rock group Maroon 5 in the concert that will
be broadcast on CBS television on February 9.
"The Night that Changed America: A Grammy Salute to The Beatles"
pays homage to the Fab Four's February 1964 performances on the
"Ed Sullivan Show," which is credited with launching rock
music's so-called British Invasion.
Pop singer John Mayer and country singer Keith Urban will also
perform at the tribute.
Grammy-winning Eurythmics released their first album in 1981 and
have sold more than 75 million records. They broke up in 1990
but briefly re-formed to release a new album and tour in 1999.
Best known for the 1983 hit "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)"
and "Here Comes the Rain Again" a year later, Eurythmics have
performed sporadically together in the past decade.
