Will Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr Reunite at London Olympics?
Last month, Paul McCartney told 'Access Hollywood' that he is in talks to appear at the London 2012 Olympics. Now, a source says that organizers are pushing for a Beatles reunion of sorts involving Macca and Ringo Starr.
When 'Access Hollywood' host Billy Bush asked McCartney in June about performing at the Olympics, Macca said, "I hear there's a rumor that I might be involved." When Bush pressed him about playing Beatles tunes, Macca responded, "I hear they're planning this sort of music."
Now, an insider tells the U.K. newspaper The Sun that organizers are hoping to get the two surviving Beatles to share the stage at the London Olympics.
"Macca was just being coy about the details," says the inside source. "He has been speaking to organizers and has said he'd love to be involved with the games in some way. The organizers want the music legend to appear alongside other big British acts. And they also want Ringo on stage as well to make it extra special."
The source adds, "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."
