(Radio.com) On February 9, 1964, The Beatles took the stage at the Ed Sullivan Theater, changing music and fandom forever. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the historic television appearance, artists like Sting, Lenny Kravitz and the Flaming Lips are returning to the same stage-now home to the Late Show with David Letterman-to honor the Fab Four.

For the week of Feb. 3, the Late Show will see a different guest musician come by each night and play a Beatles hit. Broken Bells kick off the week with a performance of "And I Love Her" with Sting hitting the stage the next night for a performance of "Drive My Car."

It's yet to be announced what Lenny Kravitz will perform on Wednesday, but the next night will feature Wayne Coyne and his band performing "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds," a song they've done before. But this time around, they'll be joined by special guest and Beatle spawn, Sean Lennon. There is a possible big finale to the week as well.
