In accordance with David Letterman’s Beatles-themed week, Sting graced the late night stage Tuesday to sing “Drive My Car” off the fab four’s 1965 album ‘Rubber Soul.’ He was accompanied by Mike Einziger from Incubus, singer ivy Levan and Paul Shaffer on the piano.
Letterman also hosted Broken Bells and Ringo Starr on the show Monday to kick start the special week with their performance of “And I Love Her.”
Lenny Kravitz will pull from the Beatles catalog tonight followed by The Flaming Lips with Sean Lennon on Thursday. Friday’s performer has not yet been announced, but it is rumored that Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr will close out the week with an appearance. They’d be returning to the same space in the Ed Sullivan Theater that Letterman now occupies almost 50 years after arrival to America on the Ed Sullivan show.
The tribute special The Night That Changed America: A GRAMMY Salute to the Beatles airs on CBS on Sunday, Feb. 9 at 7 p.m.
