Ringo Starr announces the 13th iteration of his All Starr Band and new tour dates through Europe and Israel.  After six years with the same band, Ringo welcomes Colin Hay from Men At Work (“Who Can It Be Now,” “Down Under,” “It’s A Mistake”) back to the group as well as new member Graham Gouldman of 10cc (“I’m Not In Love,” “Things We Do For Love,” “Dreadlock Holiday,” “Wall Street Shuffle”). Hay and Gouldman join existing All Starrs Steve Lukather, Gregg Rolie, Warren Ham and Gregg Bissonette.
In June, the All Starrs will embark on a 22 date tour that will kick off at the Borgata Event Center in Atlantic City, New Jersey, their only U.S. show this run, before they head to Europe. The European dates will begin in Paris, France and include shows in Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Monaco, Netherlands and Israel, concluding in Italy.  The last time the All Starrs toured Europe was 2011.
Fans can expect to hear music they know and love including “Photograph,” “It Don’t Come Easy,” “With A Little Help From My Friends,” “Yellow Submarine,” “Africa,” “Hold The Line,” “Roseanna,” “Evil Ways,” “Black Magic Woman,” as well as the hits listed above. Ringo will also be performing a song from his 19th solo album, Give More Love, which was released in September 2017.
In October and November of 2017, the All Starrs toured the U.S. launching with an eight-show mini-residency at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas with a penultimate sold-out performance at New York City’s Beacon Theater.
“While almost none of the songs are less than 30 years old, it should be noted (underlined, with asterisks) that Ringo Starr and His All-Starr Band is not a nostalgia act. “Nostalgia” implies something static, irrelevant, and vaguely frivolous. No, Starr and his merry band are much too vibrant for that, and the message of peace and love that they sing is just as relevant today. Besides, legends never go out of style.” – People Magazine
