McCartney and Starr at charity bash

The last two surviving members of The Beatles, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, are set to perform together on stage next month. It's rumoured that the pair will perform at least one song together at New York's Radio City Music Hall on 4 April. The pair last shared a stage during a tribute gig for their late bandmate George Harrison in 2002 in London.

The gig is a benefit show for the David Lynch Foundation, which promotes transcendental meditation in schools.

In a statement about the show, Sir Paul said he had practiced transcendental meditation for 40 years. "In moments of madness, it has helped me find moments of serenity," he said.

The show will aim to raise enough money to teach one million "at risk" children to meditate. "I would like to think that it would help provide them a quiet haven in a not-so-quiet world," Sir Paul said.

Starr added: "It gives me great pleasure to be part of this evening. I feel the aims of this charity are wonderful."

Sheryl Crow, Donovan, Eddie Vedder, Ben Harper and Moby will be among the other musicians taking part.
