Ringo Starr Announces US Tour

Today (Sir) Ringo Starr announced he has added U.S. tour dates to the 2018 All Starr Band’s itinerary. The band will be touring Europe this June and July and now confirm an additional 20 dates throughout North America in September.

The 2018 All Starr Band includes Colin Hay (“Who Can It be Now”, “Land Down Under”), Steve Lukather (“Africa”, “Hold The Line”, “Roseanna”), Gregg Rolie (“Black Magic Woman”, “Evil Ways”) and new member Graham Gouldman of 10cc (“I’m Not In Love”, “Things We Do For Love”). On percussion and sax is Warren Ham and on drums Gregg Bissonette.

Every Ringo and His All Starr Band show features classic hit after hit, with each band member bringing to the set their most popular songs.

Ringo has often called the All Starrs “the best 1-800-band in the land,” and of this coming tour he said, “There is no greater joy for me than playing great music with great musicians. Every night we get to play for all those loving people and it makes the hassle of touring worth it. It is a Peace & Love fest and I can’t wait to see you all out there this summer and fall.”
