Ringo Starr announced back on March 27 new fall tour dates with his longest-running All Starr Band. The current lineup of All Starrs–Todd Rundgren, Santana and Journey keyboardist Gregg Rolie, Toto guitarist Steve Lukather, Mr. Mister frontman and bassist Richard Page, saxophonist Warren Ham and drummer Gregg Bissonette–first came together in 2012 and has been touring together ever since.

The tour begins with an eight-night residency at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas and today (Oct. 4), Starr announced he will dedicate the Oct. 13 show and make a donation from his Lotus Foundation to the victims from the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival.

Tickets are available here and here. In the original announcement, Ringo said: “The dream is still unfolding. I love to play, and I love to play with this band. I can’t say that enough, and we’re on the road again.”

One of the features of the beloved Starr’s ongoing concert tours is having his band members lead the others in renditions of some of their own well known classic rock hits.

Additionally a series of limited edition artist-signed photographic prints by Ringo Starr are now available from Genesis Publications. Ringo has chosen 12 images selected from his sold-out book, Photograph, to be reproduced as large format museum quality artworks including George Harrison (during a visit to Miami), John Lennon (in Paris), Lennon and Paul McCartney (singing at Abbey Road Studios) as well as stunning landscapes from Ringo’s travels around the world. All of his royalties will go to benefit The Lotus Foundation, the charity he established with his wife Barbara Starkey. More information on the prints can be found here.
