Ringo Starr announced a U.S. leg for his 2018 tour with the All Starr Band. The 20-date run launches September 1st in Tulsa, Oklahoma and concludes the 29th in Los Angeles.
The latest iteration of the former Beatle’s rotating group features returning members – singer-guitarist Colin Hay (Men at Work), guitarist Steve Lukather (Toto), singer-keyboardist Gregg Rolie (Santana, Journey), saxophonist Warren Ham (Toto, Bloodrock), drummer Gregg Bissonette (Toto, Santana) – and one new recruit, bassist-singer Graham Gouldman (10cc).
The All Starr Band will continue their mix-and-match setlist approach, performing hits from each member’s respective bands onstage. The sextet previously announced a European run for June and July, along with a date in Atlantic City, New Jersey on June 2nd.
Singer-songwriter Todd Rundgren, who is currently prepping for a spring reunion tour with Utopia, toured with the All Starr Band during their fall 2017 trek.
Starr, who was previously knighted as a member of the Beatles in 1965, was recently awarded a solo knighthood by Queen Elizabeth for his “services to music.” The drummer expressed his gratitude in a statement, writing, “It’s an honor and a pleasure to be considered and acknowledged for my music and my charity work, both of which I love. Peace and love.”
Starr released his 19th studio album, Give More Love, in September.
