Former Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr reunited on an American stage for the only time in the past 20 years, during this historic 2009 Radio City Music Hall benefit concert. The concert will be broadcast on New York City's channel THIRTEEN* on Sunday, April 29, at 10:30 pm (check local listings for broadcast times and dates in your area).

The Beatle reunion highlights the 90-minute ''Change Begins Within'' concert to benefit the David Lynch Foundation, a charity set up in 2005 by the iconic filmmaker David Lynch to fund Transcendental Meditation programs for at-risk youth, veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder, and women who suffer from domestic abuse and violence.

McCartney performs a set of Beatles, Wings and solo classics; Starr sings his own set of Beatle and solo hits; and McCartney and Starr join together on stage for a finale of ''With A Little Help from My Friends,'' Paul's rarely performed ''Cosmically Conscious,'' and Beatle fan favorite ''I Saw Her Standing There.''

Also appearing on the broadcast are comedian Jerry Seinfeld as well as musicians Sheryl Crow (''My Sweet Lord''), Eddie Vedder and Ben Harper, Moby and Betty LaVette (''Natural Blues''), Paul Horn, newly-elected Rock-and-Roll-Hall of Famer Donovan and Jim James (''Hurdy Gurdy Man'').

The concert was co-produced by Hoosick Falls Productions and David Lynch Foundation Television (DLF.TV) with executive producer George Verschoor.

The David Lynch Foundation has provided scholarships for more than 200,000 students and veterans to learn to meditate.

Transcendental Meditation is a simple, easily learned technique, practiced for 15 to 20 minutes twice daily, sitting comfortably with the eyes closed. According to research funded by the US National Institutes of Health and published in peer-reviewed scientific journals, the technique reduces stress and stress-related disorders, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, cardiovascular disease, and substance abuse.
