How about a 2012 Olympics Concert in London starring [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Paul McCartney[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Ringo Starr[/lastfm]?

The surviving Beatles have quashed the rumors of a possible “reunion” at the London Olympics in 2012.
Previously, it had been reported by U.K. newspaper The Sun that festival organizers were hoping to get Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr to perform together at the ceremonies, perhaps with members of the Harrison and Lennon families joining in to properly represent all four original Beatles.
Representatives for both McCartney and Starr have shot down those reports, with McCartney calling it “tabloid stuff.” A rep for Starr said “this is not true.”
Julian Lennon, who theoretically would have filled his father’s role on stage at this event, commented via his Facebook page: “There will NEVER be a Beatles reunion, because two of the members of the band have since passed… And NO ONE could, or should try to replace them.”
There is at least the possibility that McCartney himself might appear at the London Olympics, something he discussed in somewhat vague terms during an interview last month.
