Update (July 27): Ringo has added a batch of tour dates in the western U.S. (See below.)

“I just love playing with these musicians, ” Ringo said.  “We’ve been together for five years. We know what to do. … We’re getting longevity as a band now. It’s so far out.  This group of All Starrs has worked so well and is so supportive. It has just been a dream for me.”

It’s become an annual (since 2008) event: Ringo Starr spread a message of peace and love on his birthday – his 76th (!) – today (July 7) in front of the Capitol Records building in Hollywood with a little help from his A-List friends (see video highlights below).

Special guests, family, and friends took part in his “Peace and Love” salute. This year’s guests included Benmont Tench, Dave Stewart, David Lynch, Ed Begley Jr., Edgar Winter, Eric Burdon, Glen Ballard, actor Joe Mantegna, Jim Keltner, Joe Walsh, Richard Lewis, actor Bud Cort, Richard Marx, and the current All Starrs: Steve Lukather and Gregg Bissonette.

This year’s celebration also included musical tribute performances of several Starr songs. Vandaveer played “Don’t Pass Me By” and “Photograph,” Alberta Cross performed “It Don’t Come Easy and “You Can’t Stop Lightening” and Dave Stewart and Jon Stevens collaborated on “With A Little Help From My Friends” and “No No Song.”

Ringo also revealed a new set of tour dates with the current and longest running All Starrs (Lukather, Gregg Rolie, Todd Rundgren, Richard Page, Warren Ham and Bissonnette) that takes them to Japan, Korea bookended by dates up and down the West Coast.

Starr got the idea for “Peace and Love” when someone simply asked him what he wanted for his birthday one year. “And out of the blue I thought, ‘You know what would be great if everybody at noon on the 7th of July went ‘peace and love,'” he has said. “Wherever you are, on the bus, down the mine, wherever. You could just go ‘peace and love.’ That would be a great gift to me.”
