1980s Pop Group Eurythmics Are Reuniting [VIDEO]
The 80′s synth-pop duo of Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart, best know as the Eurythmics are reuniting, even if it’s for only one night.
Lennox and Stewart formed the group in December of 1980 and for the next decade never looked back.
Their biggest hit was their first release, ‘Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)’ but rolled out a total of ten top 40 hits.
So, why the reunion?
To pay tribute to the Beatles.
The Eurythmics will team up for ‘The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute To The Beatles.’ The show will be taped the day after the Grammy Awards, on January 27, at the L.A. Convention Center.
The special will air on News Channel 10 on February 9, which is exactly 50 years after the Beatles made their debut on ‘The Ed Sullivan Show.’
Expect around a dozen performers to hit the stage for the salute including; John Mayer and Keith Urban doing ‘Don’t Let Me Down,’ and Alicia Keys and John Legend performing ‘Let It Be.’
Maroon 5 will also be on the bill. You may recall that this past season of the Voice, Adam Levine and his team did a great version of ‘A Hard Day’s Night.’
Here are a couple of my favorite Eurythmics’ songs that you can hear on our ‘Best of the 80′s Weekends.’
