Billy Ray Cyrus & Martina McBride to headline Hollywood Bowl Beatles celebration

BILLY RAY CYRUS and MARTINA McBRIDE are among the artists who will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the BEATLES' Hollywood Bowl show in Los Angeles this weekend.

The Fab Four performed at the fabled venue on 23 August, 1964, and now a group of famous fans are hoping to recreate the musical magic onstage by performing their renditions of Beatles tunes.

Former Eurythmics star Dave Stewart, Michelle Branch and Mary Lambert will also be among the stars paying tribute to Paul McCartney and his bandmates at the three shows planned for Friday night (22Aug14), Saturday and Sunday (23-24Aug14), while veteran TV host Bob Eubanks, who produced the Beatles' original appearance at the Hollywood Bowl, will also appear onstage.

The all-star line-up will change every night, but the songs performed will all be from the Beatles' 1964 Hollywood Bowl setlist - beginning with their hit Twist and Shout and ending with a cover of Little Richard's Long Tall Sally.

The second half of each gig will feature songs the band would later release.
