Ringo Starr Announces 2017 US Dates With All-Starr Bandby Best Classic Bands Staff
Ringo Starr announced today (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.
Tickets are available here and here. In the 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.
