An article in The Telegraph, a large newspaper in the UK, on 12 July reports rumours of a potential reunion of former Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr at the opening ceremonies for the 2012 Olympics in London.

The article features a photo of Paul and Ringo appearing together two years ago in New York City, in support of the April 2009 benefit for the David Lynch Foundation's 'Change Begins Within' initiative to teach the Transcendental Meditation Programme to one million at-risk schoolchildren worldwide.

In the photo, a grinning Paul stands beside Ringo, who is speaking during a press conference at Radio City Music Hall on 3 April 2009, the day before the grand all-star benefit concert for the Foundation's global outreach programme. Behind them the words 'Change Begins...' are visible on the backdrop.

Both stars spoke at the press conference, and also performed at the sold-out concert the following night. The events were widely reported by the press around the world, with great media 'buzz' beforehand about whether the two surviving Beatles, who were slated to perform separate musical sets, would also perform together onstage. A New York Times article relates how this happened in the transition between Paul's 'exuberant set' and Ringo's—the first time they had performed together in seven years.

In addition to McCartney and Starr, the concert drew an array of top musical artists including Donovan, Sheryl Crow, Paul Horn, Bettye LaVette, Ben Harper, Eddie Vedder, Moby, and the Beach Boys' Mike Love, as well as comedian Jerry Seinfeld.
