Ringo Starr Announces 2012 U.S. Tour
Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band will once again be hitting the road for a run of shows this summer. The tour kicks off June 14 in Niagara Falls and wraps up July 21 at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles, Calif. This will be the twelfth incarnation of Ringo’s cast of characters known as the “All Starr Band,” the idea of which, according to Ringo, is that “everybody on stage is a star in their own right.”
Ringo first took this show on the road back in 1989 . This time out he will be joined by guitarist Steve Lukather (Toto), keyboardist Gregg Rolie (Santana & Journey), bassist Richard Page (Mr. Mister), sax player Mark Rivera, drummer Gregg Bissonette (David Lee Roth band, among others) and all around “Mr. Talent” Todd Rundgren also on guitar. They will all get to take some of their own hits out for a spin alongside Ringo’s.
Songs from Starr’s recently released new album, ‘Ringo 2012,’ will surely figure into the set list as well as solo hits and Beatles favorites such as ‘Yellow Submarine,’ including his signature ‘A Little Help From My Friends.’
