The Broken Bells Kick Off Beatles Week On Letterman

(hennemusic) The Broken Bells kicked off Beatles week on The Late Show with David Letterman Monday night, as the show pays tribute to the 50th anniversary of The Beatles' groundbreaking first appearance on the "Ed Sullivan Show."

Broken Bells - the duo comprised of The Shins' James Mercer and producer Brian Burton (better known as Danger Mouse) - performed The Beatles' classic "And I Love Her", complete with the added visual of drummer Ringo Starr playing along via video displayed on a vintage television set.

The Late Show is filmed at the Ed Sullivan Theater, site of the Fab Four's iconic U.S. debut on February 9, 1964. The Beatles' first "Ed Sullivan Show" appearance is hailed by many historians and critics to be one of the most important moments in music and television.
