Beatles Reunion At 2012 Olympics?
Officials are reporting that a deal has been struck between Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr – the two remaining members of The Beatles – to reunite on stage at the 2012 Olympics.
The remaining living members of the Fab Four — Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr — have reportedly been approached to sing at the games next summer, according to British press. As for the late John Lennon and George Harrison, they could be represented by someone from their families.
According to a source who spoke with the Sun, “He [McCartney] has been speaking to organizers and has said he’d love to be involved with the games in some way. The organizers want The Beatles legend to appear alongside other big British acts. And they want Ringo on stage as well to make it extra special. There’s also the possibility that George Harrison and John Lennon could be represented by their kids. The Beatles are loved all over the world so it’s a no-brainer that they should be represented at the Olympics.”
Is it really a reunion? Is a “Beatles reunion” possible when half of the band is no longer alive? Or is this just a concert performance by Paul and Ringo?
