Eagle Rock EntertainmentA 2009 benefit concert featuring a rare onstage reunion by surviving Beatles band mates Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr will be released on DVD and as a digital video on September 1.

Change Begins Within documents a show held at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall that included McCartney and Starr performing separately and together, as well as performances by Donovan, Eddie Vedder, Sheryl Crow, My Morning Jacket‘s Jim James, Moby, comedian Jerry Seinfeld and others.

Among the highlights of the Change Begins Within concert, which took place April 4, 2009, were McCartney and Starr taking the stage together to play three tunes: the Fab Four classics “With a Little Help from My Friends” and “I Saw Her Standing There,” and the Macca rarity “Cosmically Conscious.” For the latter two songs, the former Beatles were joined by the evening’s other performers.

The show also featured Vedder teaming up with Ben Harper for a rendition of the QueenDavid Bowie duet “Under Pressure,” Crow playing the George Harrison classic “My Sweet Lord” and Donovan singing his own hit “Hurdy Gurdy Man” with James and Harper. You can check out a video clip of the Donovan performance on VEVO.com.
