Paul McCartney and Brian Wilson will duet for benefit.

Old and Melodic

Perhaps the two greatest melodists of the rock era will appear together at anti-land mine benefit:

    They plan to duet on “God Only Knows” from the Beach Boys’ seminal 1966 album “Pet Sounds” and on the title song from the Beatles’ 1970 “Let It Be” collection at a fund-raiser for the anti-land mines charity supported by McCartney and his wife, Heather.

    The duets promise to be the highlight of a show that will include separate sets from Wilson and McCartney. Their respective work more than 35 years ago on “Pet Sounds” and the Beatles’ landmark “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” revolutionized rock music.

    “Brian is a phenomenal talent; his is the only music that can reduce me to tears,” McCartney said in a statement issued after the two had rehearsed for the show on Tuesday at Sony Studios in Los Angeles.

    The charity event, at the Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles, comes as McCartney and his band prepare for the next leg of their U.S. tour, which opens in Milwaukee on Saturday.

    While organizers of Adopt A Minefield charity touted the upcoming McCartney-Wilson matchup as the first of its kind, the two also performed together in June as part of an all-star concert celebrating Britain’s Queen Elizabeth’s Golden Jubilee.
