Ringo Starr has announced to hit the road with his All Starr Band this summer for a forthcoming North American tour to take place in May and June.
This is Ringo’s first tour since the downtime of live music during pandemic in 2020 and 2021. For the fifth time, following tours in 2001, 2003, 2006, and 2014, the former Beatle will kick off the trek on May 27 in Rama, Ontario, and close on June 26 in Clearwater, Florida.
The current edition of the All Starr Band features such veteran All Starr’s as Toto’s Steve Lukather, Men At Work’s Colin Hay, Santana and Journey co-founder Gregg Rolie, along with percussionist Warren Ham, drummer Gregg Bissonette, and Hamish Stuart from the Average White Band and a longtime Paul McCartney sideman, and the return of All Starr alum Edgar Winter.
Ringo said in a statement:
“I can’t wait to get back out on the road and play. This is the longest I’ve been off the road in years — up until 2020 I was touring every year with the All Starrs — and I’ve really missed it. Making music in the studio has been great, and it certainly saved me during the pandemic, but nothing beats playing live with great musicians in front of an audience. I love my fans and they love me, and it’s going to be wonderful to be peace and loving and playing for them again.”
During the coronavirus pandemic, Starr has kept busy by releasing two EPs, Zoom In and Change the World, in 2021. He also released a book, the commemorative Ringo Rocks: 30 Years of the All Starrs retrospective book which has now sold out and will soon issue a new Beatles coffee-table book titled Lifted: Fab Images and Memories of My Life With the Beatles From Across the Universe.
Both are published by Julien’s Auctions, with Lifted available from Valentine’s Day. All proceeds from the new book will benefit the Lotus Foundation, which supports and promotes charities that focus on substance abuse, brain tumors, cancer, battered women and children, homelessness and animals in need.
Tickets for the tour are on sale now. More details can be found on Starr’s official website.
