Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band will hit the road once again.
“I love playing with this band,” Ringo said in a press release, “and I can’t wait to get back out and play with them again.”
The All Starr Band will kick off the trek in Rama, Ontario on June 6 and finish in Los Angeles at The Greek on July 19. Other dates include two shows at New York’s Beacon Theater on June 17 and 18, and stops in Atlantic City, Chicago, Dallas, and San Diego (see the full list of dates below).
Outside of the tour, 2014 is shaping up to be memorable for the former Beatle.
On January 20, The David Lynch Foundation honored Ringo and his musical legacy with the “Lifetime of Peace & Love Award.” During Sunday’s GRAMMYs ceremony, Ringo performed “Photograph” with friends Steve Lukather and Peter Frampton before joining McCartney and his band for “Queenie Eye” off of McCartney’s New album. Monday (January 27) saw the surviving Beatles reunite again for the CBS taping of The Beatles Tribute celebrating the 50th Anniversary of their first U.S. visit and appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show. It will be broadcast on the exact date, February 9.
Also in February, “Octopus’s Garden”, a children’s book based on Ringo’s lyrics, will be published via Simon & Shuster.
Finally, on July 7th, Ringo will celebrate his 74th birthday at a Peace & Love celebration in Los Angeles. More details around this event are yet to be announced.
