LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - British pop duo Eurythmics will reunite in Los Angeles later this month for a performance celebrating the 50th anniversary of The Beatles' appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show, organisers said on Monday.

The duo consisting of singer Annie Lennox and musician Dave Stewart, who last toured together in 2000, will play songs by The Beatles in the Jan 27 concert organised by the Recording Academy, which hands out the annual Grammy Awards.

They will also share the stage with R&B singers Alicia Keys and John Legend and pop-rock group Maroon 5 in the concert that will be broadcast on CBS television on Feb 9.

The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute To The Beatles pays homage to the Fab Four's February 1964 performances on the Ed Sullivan Show, which is credited with launching rock music's so-called British Invasion.
