Legendary Beatles drummer Ringo Starr And His All-Starr Band will be thrilling fans across the continent with their just announced exclusive North American tour. The summer tour will include a one-night performance at the Hard Rock Casino Vancouver on Tuesday, July 15, 2014.
Earlier this month, Ringo’s musical legacy was celebrated when the David Lynch Foundation honoured Ringo with the Lifetime of Peace & Love Award. The event included a star-studded tribute performing from Ringo’s extensive catalogue. His most recent appearance was on the telecast of the 56th Annual Grammy Awards where he performed his song, “Photograph” followed by him jumping on the kit during his old bandmate, Paul McCartney’s performance. The two were reunited again the following evening for the taping of CBS’ upcoming special, The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles celebrating the 50th anniversary of their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show.
For the leg of their summer tour, Ringo – who will celebrate his 74th birthday in July – will be bringing the same backing musicians that he took out on the road in 2012 … Steve Lukather, Richard Page, Gregg Rolie, Todd Rundgren and Gregg Bissonette. “I love playing with this band,” Ringo said, “and I can’t wait to get back out and play with them again.” Tickets go on sale on Thursday, February 6 at 10 am and are $149.50, $154.50 & $164.50 (plus service charges).
