Ringo Starr, Paula McCartney, Beyonce, Taylor Swift and More To Perform at the 2014 Grammy Awards

Please followTMW on Twitter and like M.A. Cassata on Facebook.

In case you missed it….Beyonce and Jay Z have been confirmed to perform at the Grammy Awards this weekend.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Taylor Swift, Daft Punk, and former Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, are already set to perform during music’s biggest night and now two more superstars have been confirmed to hit the stage on Sunday.

Last week, reports surfaced suggesting the Crazy in Love hitmaker would open the show, while Madonna was rumored to be taking to the stage alongside one of the night’s nominees.

Paul McCartney in Talks to Perform Last Show at Candlestick Park

Paul McCartney is in top secret talks to perform the final show at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park before the wrecking ball demolishes the sports mecca, according to media reports.

The Beatles performed their final Stateside concert at the former home of both baseball’s Giants and football’s 49ers in August, 1966, and now venue bosses are hoping McCartney will return for one final, historic show.

The 53-year-old park will be demolished in early 2015.

One Candlestick Park official tells the San Jose Mercury News that he “remained hopeful” that the former Beatles star would take the stage one last time, and Phil Ginsberg, general manager for San Francisco’s Recreation and Parks Department, says, “Keep your fingers crossed. It’s a possibility.”

Paul McCartney, Madonna join Justin Timberlake for SNL Skit

Paul McCartney, Madonna and Barry Gibb showed off their comedic chops this weekend by joining Justin Timberlake and funnyman Jimmy Fallon for a Christmas edition of Saturday Night Live.

Timberlake and Fallon kicked off Saturday’s live gig by performing a medley of songs dressed as a tube of wrapping paper and a gift bag respectively, as they parodied tracks such as Ludacris’ Roll Out (My Business), Gotye’s Somebody That I Used To Know and It’s Tricky by Run-D.M.C.

Fallon then delivered the opening monologue by showing off impressions of David Bowie, Bob Dylan and McCartney as he acted out his dream collaboration, blaming heavy New York traffic for preventing the rockers from appearing in person.

However, as he began to mimic the former Beatle, McCartney himself stepped out onstage, much to the crowd’s delight, and quipped, “I was (stuck in traffic) but then I took a Citi Bike (public bike-sharing system). Am I too late to sing a song?”

The unlikely duo then launched into a rendition of Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas as fake snow fell all around them.

McCartney’s unexpected appearance was just the first of many surprises – Madonna joined in a discussion about politics during spoof segment The Barry Gibb Talk Show, with Fallon sporting ’70s attire, a fake wig and fake facial hair to portray the only surviving Bee Gees star.

The Emotions hitmaker appeared to be in on the joke as he joined Timberlake and Fallon, who were both rocking vintage hair styles and suits, to close out the skit.

Even outgoing New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg made time for a cameo during SNL’s Weekend Update to discuss his plans after stepping down from the post early next year.

Saturday Night Live will return to U.S. TV screens for a new episode on Jan. 18 when rapper/actor Drake will serve as guest host.

Beatle Fan Tours The World With Paul McCartney

As a 13-year-old New York City schoolgirl, Irene Katz fell in love with The Beatles as did most of her peers. Her favorite was Paul McCartney. When she discovered the group was coming to New York for their first American visit, Irene just had to see them and give them (especially Paul) the chance to see her! What she couldn’t know then was that her face would become one of the most memorable images of American Beatlemania, seen in countless films, documentaries and TV shows.

Knowing that her parents would never allow her to spend all day on the Manhattan streets screaming for an English rock ‘n’ roll group, she cooked up a scheme. She told her parents she was going to stay at a girlfriend’s house, studying Friday night and all day Saturday, but early Saturday morning the girls high-tailed it to the Plaza Hotel and stood screaming words of love towards The Beatles’ rooms, hoping that “The Fab Four” would notice them.

Irene knew she had to stand out from the crowd, so she decided to make a distinctive sign. She thought of a very British expression: “The King is dead, long live the King.” That led her to devise a contemporary adaptation: “Elvis is dead. Long live The Beatles.”

The sign was a standout and drew the attention of TV news crews covering the event, zeroing in on her and making it the lead item that night on the New York City evening news. Consequently, that meant she was busted when her parents saw their daughter on TV. However, that didn’t stop Irene from sneaking out the next day to scream outside the Beatles hotel again.

The following Wednesday (February 12th 1964) Irene saw the Beatles from the decidedly better vantage point in the audience at the group’s debut New York concert at Carnegie Hall.

Time marches on and Irene grew up but never stopped being a Beatles fan. Through the decades, that news footage of the teenaged Irene and her sign continued to be featured in movies, documentaries and TV programs.

Then one day in 2002 she attended a Paul McCartney concert where she suddenly spotted a familiar face right behind Paul as he sang “All My Loving.” There on the giant video screen throughout most of the song was the young Irene Katz in all her Beatlemaniac glory with her memorable sign. As it turns out, McCartney had selected that exact footage for one of the key video montages that plays during his concerts worldwide. So it was that Irene’s teenage fantasy of touring the world with Paul and being with him ever night had actually come true. Today, at 63, the young grandmother is still a Beatles fan and on stage behind Paul at every concert around the world.

Irene Katz will be a special guest at the upcoming 2014 Fest For Beatles Fans, taking place at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York City on February 7th through 9th.

Johnny Depp And Kate Moss Reunite For Paul McCartney Promo

Hollywood superstar Johnny Depp reunited with his former supermodel girlfriend Kate Moss on the set of Paul Mccartney’s promo shoot in London for his latest track.

The Pirates of The Carribean star and Moss split in 1998 after dating for four years, but they got together again when they were both invited to appear in The Beatles legend’s promo for his new song Queenie Eye.

It will be the first time the former couple appears on screen together since the split.

A source tells Britain’s Daily Record, “There were a whole host of celebrities taking part. It was a really mixed bunch. Meryl Streep and Gary Barlow were in the studio and there was an audience on set. But the big talking point was Kate and Johnny.

“They try to avoid one another in public as there have been raw emotions in the past, but neither could say no to Macca. They only have little roles, but it’s the first time they’re appearing on screen together since their split.”

Elton John, Queen with Adam Lambert Rule at iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas

Elton John may not have a current hit on the radio, but he earned the most cheers at the iHeartRadio music festival.

John was one of top performers Friday night at the MGM Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Katy Perry, Chris Brown and Robin Thicke and others also hit the stage.

But John was the crowd’s favourite — he earned a standing ovation after his third song.

Adam Lambert was equally as enduring when he performed with Queen. Pop-rock trio fun. also sang with iconic rock band.

Other performers during the five-hour concert included Keith Urban, Muse and J. Cole — acts who also impressed the crowd.

Justin Timberlake, Paul McCartney and Bruno Mars will close the 2-day iHeartRadio festival Saturday, but here’s a breakdown of day one:

HE STOLE THE NIGHT

From the moment Elton John went from playing the piano while sitting to sitting on top of the piano to singing, he captured the entire audience at the MGM Garden Arena.

The 66-year-old was fiery on his red piano, belting tunes like “Tiny Dancer” and “Bennie and the Jets.”

“Good evening, Vegas!” he yelled, sporting a dark glittery blazer.

John, who recently had surgery to remove his appendix, didn’t show any signs of slowing down during his five-song set. He was vocally loud and clear, and he even made a new song, “Home Again,” feel classic. (John will release a new album, “The Diving Board,” on Tuesday).

Fittingly, the icon closed with “I’m Still Standing.” Read more>>
