Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr To Perform Together

Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr To Perform Together

by Paul Cashmere - March 8 2009

Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr will share a stage for the first time since 2002 when they perform at Radio City Music Hall in New York on April 4.

The show is the ‘Charity Begins Within; benefit to raise funds to teach one million children how to mediate.

Starr and McCartney learned mediation under the guidance of Guru Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in India in the 60s.

“In moments of madness, Transcendental Meditation has helped me find moments of serenity,” Paul said in a statement. He added that he supports the work of the David Lynch Foundation to bring Transcendental Meditation to one million children for the same reason. “I would like to think that it would help provide them a quiet haven in a not-so-quiet world.”

Ringo Starr expressed his personal satisfaction to be performing at the concert: “It gives me great pleasure to be part of this evening. I feel the aims of this charity are wonderful!”

The show will also feature Eddie Vedder, Sheryl Crow, Donovan, Ben Harper, Moby and Bettye LaVette. Undercover hears that Bettye may be called upon to sing Let It Be with the Beatle legends.

Tickets for the show will go on sale on Monday (March 9)

(Awesome to see part of the Beatles perform together again for a nice cause. I'm sure George and John will be looking down and smiling.)
