Ringo Starr will head out on tour next year in honor of the 30th anniversary of his All Starr Band.
The All Starr Band has the same lineup as 2018, aside from Hamish Stuart, who will take the spot of 10cc’s Graham Gouldman. Performers include Steve Lukather of Toto, Santana’s Gregg Rolie, Colin Hay of Men at Work, instrumentalist Warren Ham, and drummers Gregg Bissonette and Stuart.
Southern California’s Harrah’s Resort will kick-off the trek on March 21, 2019, followed by a handful of shows throughout Japan. In August, the band will head to North America to perform in Ontario, Illinois, and Tennessee. After returning to California, they will wrap-up in Los Angeles on September 1. Starr’s most recent record, Give More Love, was released in 2017.
The Beatles star has been touring with an All Starr band since 1989. Although the lineup has gone through some changes, he told Rolling Stone “people who come to the Ringo and the All Starr shows know what they’re gonna get from me.”
“They get a couple of the new record, and then we just play all these incredible songs,” Starr said. “The great thing about it is, though I come down to the front of the stage to do several of the numbers, I get a chance to sit at my kit and play with all of these great songs. So it’s a win/win for me.”
In addition to the tour, Starr’s new photo book, Another Day In The Life, will be released. The book will feature “unpublished photographs, captioned with Ringo’s observations and anecdotes,” a press release states.
