A TWO-HOUR THANKSGIVING EVENT ON ABC -- BACK-TO-BACK PERFORMANCES FROM TWO GENERATIONS OF MUSICAL SENSATIONS

"BEYONC�: I AM... YOURS" AIRS AT 9:00 PM, ET AND "PAUL McCARTNEY: GOOD EVENING NEW YORK CITY" AT 10:00 PM/ET

On Thanksgiving night, November 26, the ABC Network will air back-to-back hours from two of the world's biggest music stars, Beyonc� and Paul McCartney. Both specials will incorporate rarely seen footage of Beyonc� and Paul McCartney, revealing interviews from the artists and their unique musical performances.

"Beyonc�: I am...Yours," at 9:00 p.m., ET

In Beyonc�'s first network special with ABC, viewers get a front row seat to an intimate performance from the iconic artist. The hour-long special captures the superstar's appearance at the Encore Theater in Wynn, Las Vegas this past summer, where she tells the story of her career through music and dance. Woven throughout the special are backstage moments, footage of her off stage life, and rare childhood video. Additionally, viewers will get to know her famously all-female band -- drums, keys, bass, guitar, horns and percussion players. Beyonc� shares how she transformed herself from a talented nine-year-old into one of the world's most powerful musical forces � and what she thinks of it all.

"Paul McCartney: Good Evening New York City," at 10:00 p.m., ET

Forty-four years ago, four kids from Liverpool performed what was then the largest, highest grossing rock concert ever � the Beatles Live at Shea Stadium. In the summer of 2009, Paul McCartney did it again, performing at Shea's former site, New York's Citi Field in Queens, NY. ABC will bring viewers this dazzling concert in which he performs Beatles, Wings and solo classics. Culled from nearly three hours of music and video, the program is an emotional journey through his legendary 50-year musical career and includes footage of the original Beatles concert at Shea. McCartney also talks candidly about those early days and what it was like to return to a place where he performed at the height of Beatlemania.

The specials are produced by ABC's Lincoln Square Productions. Rudy Bednar and David Saltz are the executive producers.
