The twenty seven date tour kicks off in Kiev, Ukraine on 4th June, stopping in Russia, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Latvia, Poland, Britain, France, Czech Republic, Italy, Holland and Germany before concluding in Vienna, Austria on 17th July.Ringo Starr is one of the world’s brightest musical luminaries. He has enjoyed a successful and dynamic solo career as a singer, songwriter and drummer, an active musical collaborator and as an actor.
Drawing inspiration from classic blues, soul, country, honky-tonk and rock ‘n’ roll, Ringo continues to play an important role in modern music with his solo recording and touring.
Ringo Starr’s music, as a solo artist and as a Beatle, is permeated with his personality.
His warmth and humour, and his exceptional musicianship have given us songs we all know and love, including It Don’t Come Easy, With A Little Help From My Friends, Yellow Submarine, Don’t Pass Me By, Octopus’ Garden, Photograph, Back Off Boogaloo, You’re Sixteen (You’re Beautiful And You’re Mine), Don’t Go Where the Road Don’t Go, The No No Song and Never Without You.
The All Starr Band has toured consistently since its inception in 1989. Based on the concept everybody on stage is a star in their own right, each concert sees Ringo performing songs from his solo and Beatles career and each Starr performing hits from their own careers.
Over the years the revolving line up has included such stellar artists as Joe Walsh, Dr. John, Todd Rundgren, Timothy B. Schmidt, John Entwhistle, Peter Frampton, Sheila E., Rod Argent and Paul Carrack.
