We love stories like these, especially when they come from tabloids. Here’s the latest wacky one: according to the Daily Star, The Beatles will be ‘reuniting’ at the Hollywood Bowl for a concert scheduled next 27 August.

How is this possible, you ask? Good question. As the Star reports, the two surviving ex-Beatles, Sir Paul McCartney, 68, and Ringo Starr, 70, will perform with digital images of the late John Lennon and George Harrison, plus supplemental live musicians, for the next-best-thing to a full Beatles concert since 1966.

The Beatles performed at the famed Hollywood Bowl twice during their career, once in 1964 and again in 1965.

Allegedly, the concert – and again, we’re extremely dubious – will benefit world peace and breast cancer charities. So far, there has been no confirmation about the event from McCartney, Starr or Apple Records. (In other words, don’t book your travel plans just yet.)

Were the show to take place, this wouldn’t be the first time that musicians have performed with a deceased bandmate: members of Elvis Presley’s stage band, the TCB Band, led by guitarist James Burton, have been touring with an onscreen image of The King for several years, which makes us really hope this story is one to be relegated to the rumor file, and quickly.

    Don’t think digital images of George and John would be too cool. Perhaps Dhani Harrison and Julian Lennon …?

    1. Linda – it’s doubtful this will happen, anyway. But, I’ll take whatever slice of the Beatles I can get

      Thanks for reading and listening 🙂
