The 78-year-old former Beatles drummer will hit the road again this year with All Stars friends.
August 2019 marks the 30th anniversary of Ringo and His All Starr Band and they will hit the road for a celebratory tour which concludes September 1 at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles, nearly 30 years to the day when the inaugural All Starrs completed their first tour on September 3, 1989. (See dates below.)
Ringo also revealed the location of his annual birthday celebration. On July 7, 2019, he’ll turn 79 and will return to Capitol Records Tower in Los Angeles for his annual Peace & Love celebration, where he’ll join gathered fans.
The tour, which features Colin Hay, Steve Lukather, Gregg Rolie and Hamish Stuart, will celebrate 30 years of the All Starr Band
The original (and ever-changing) band began life in 1989 when Ringo went out with Joe Walsh, Nils Lofgren, Dr. John, Billy Preston, Rick Danko, Levon Helm, Clarence Clemons and Jim Keltner.
No UK dates as yet.
Ringo marked the anniversary re-release of The White Album – or as he jokingly calls it ‘light album’ – by posting this classic pic of The Fab Four, alongside his usual many emojis.
Starr’s touring calendar will begin on March 21 at the Harrah’s Resort Southern California in Funner, Calif., according to a news release. After that, he’ll head to Japan for two weeks worth of shows, then return to North America in the summer. Preliminary dates include Windsor, Ont.; Highland Park, Ill. (with the Beach Boys); Nashville and Los Angeles. The release says more shows will be announced soon.
