With February marking the 50th anniversary since the Beatles made their debut in America, it is only fitting that artists from all different genres of music gather to honor one of the most iconic bands.
The Late Show With David Letterman has begun their own homage to the foursome by having the musical guest stars perform some of the Beatles tunes. Last night, Lenny Kravitz, for those of you that know him as an actor, yes Cinna from The Hunger Games films, took on “Get Back,” the closing track on Let It Be.
Kravitz’s performance marks the halfway mark on the homage weeks. On Monday, Broken Bells performed a synthy version of “And I Love Her” while on Tuesday, Sting performed a duet version of “Drive My Car” with neo-soul singer Ivy Levan. As for tonight, Sean Lennon and the Flaming Lips are set to perform “Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds” while rumor has it Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr are due to appear on Friday night’s show to perform.
