“Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Ringo Starr!” …and so it began.
It’s not very common to see one of the former Beatles live these days but, that all changed in 1989 when Ringo Starr created his All Starr Band. He’s been around with a variation of All Star musicians through the years, but on this particular tour he invited Steve Lukather (Toto), Gregg Rolie (Santana, Journey), Gregg Bissonette, Richard Page (Mr. Mister), Warren Ham and Todd Rundgren. During the set they each played songs from some of their original bands. As for Ringo, this included some tunes from his solo career as well as songs he wrote from his time with the Beatles.This was their second last show of the tour and these long known musicians played with emotion and youthful energy that spread through the crowd. Hopefully we will be able to see them back in fall for their next tour.
