The Flaming Lips, Broken Bells and Sting are to perform songs by The Beatles on the Late Show With David Letterman this coming week.

The performances are part of the US TV show’s weeklong tribute to the Fab Four, and in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the band’s first performance on The Ed Sullivan Show, according to Billboard.

Broken Bells will perform ‘And I Love Her’ on February 3, Sting will play ‘Drive My Car’ on the 4th and Sean Lennon will join The Flaming Lips on February 6 to perform ‘Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds’. More artists are to be announced during the week.

Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr reunited onstage last week at a recording of The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute To The Beatles. The show was recorded on January 27, one day after this year’s Grammy Awards, and will be aired on February 9, exactly 50 years after The Beatles made their US television debut.

Dave Grohl, Pharrell Williams, Stevie Wonder, Katy Perry and Ed Sheeran were among the artists who performed live on the night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles with ABC News reporting that Tom Hanks, Sean Penn, Jeff Bridges, Eric Idle, Johnny Depp, Yoko Ono and Sean Lennon were in attendance.
