Beatles to reunite in 2008?

Surviving former Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr look set to reunite to celebrate their home city Liverpool’s status of European Capital Of Culture in 2008.

McCartney has already been approached to perform at the opening ceremony – and now organisers want Starr to take part too.

A source reveals: “It’s already expected that Paul (McCartney) will be involved but to get Ringo to join him on stage would be the icing on the cake.

“It would certainly be a massive coup and quite emotional for people of a certain age to see the two surviving Beatles performing together in their home city for the first time since the mid-sixties.”
