Thanksgiving specials also will include interviews

NEW YORK -- ABC says Paul McCartney and Beyonce will star in back-to-back one-hour specials Thanksgiving night.

The evening starts at 9 p.m. EST with a Beyonce concert that was taped over the summer in Las Vegas.

That will be followed by a McCartney special that includes highlights from his July concert at Citi Field in New York City. The stadium in Queens is next to the former site of Shea Stadium, where he and his fellow Beatles rocked at the height of Beatlemania. Footage from that 1965 concert also will air during the special.

Both specials will offer interviews and personal glimpses of the stars.
