A long-awaited Beatles Reunion happened on-stage at New York’s Radio City Music Hall on April 4th. A fundraiser brought the Paul McCartney-Ringo Starr reunion back to the U.S. View photos a terrific video of The Beatle’s final performance below.

How did the Reunion happen? After all, McCartney and Starr have consistently turned down offers to take the stage together for years.

The only two Beatles still living, came together again courtesy of “transcendental mediation.” The fundraiser for producer David Lynch’s “Change Begins Within” hopes to raise funds to “change” the lives of millions of children, world-wide, by funding, and teaching them, transcendental meditation techniques.

McCartney and Starr played the competitive duo, pretending to steal the spotlight from each other, and prompting applause for each. Not forgetting “The Beatles” no longer with us, George Harrison and John Lennon, Paul and Ringo encouraged the audience to cheer for them too.

McCartney and Starr performed together: “With a Little Help From My Friends,” and Lennon’s “Here Today.” McCartney soloed “Jet,” “Baby You Can Drive My Car,” and “I Saw Her Standing There.”

Also performing as the fundraiser band: Sheryl Crow on tambourine, Donovan, The Beach Boy’s Mike Love. Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder played maracas, Betty LaVette, referred to “as the sexiest voice alive,” was there, and Ben Harper on guitar.

While McCartney and Starr were the big draw of the evening, Jerry Seinfeld’s solo routine was a huge hit. Seinfeld told the audience that he has meditated for years. Howard Stern said meditation had saved his Mother’s life and indicated he also meditates. Stern was clearly blown- away with being on the stage with “The Beatles,” something he said he could have never dreamt of doing. Sheryl Crow and David Bowie did George Harrison’s “My Sweet Lord.”

David Lynch of the David Lynch Foundation, is a three-time Academy Award nominee for directing “The Elephant Man,” “Blue Velvet,” “Mulholland Drive.” His first full-length film, “Eraserhead,” almost didn’t make it to the screen. It now has cult following, but is considered a critical success.

Paul McCartney is 66 years old. His wife, Linda Eastman McCartney, died from breast cancer in 1998. They were married for 29 years. McCartney and Linda had three children together. He adopted his wife’s daughter after their marriage. Paul was the last Beatle to marry.

Ringo Starr will be 69 years old in July. He has been married to actress, and former Bond Girl, Barbara Bach for 28 years. Starr has three children by a former marriage.

One odd thing, this McCartney-Starr reunion received practically no press. I’m guessing the audience was filled with “old” friends, and new elitists. The video below features the famed 1969-1970’s rooftop performance atop the Apple Headquarters in Saville Row, singing “Get Back.” The Beatles disbanded shortly after.
