Ringo Starr & His All Starr Band Keeps Shining

The Beatles asked, “Will you still need me, will you still feed me? When I’m 64?” Well, what about 74? Ringo Starr has announced a new batch of U.S. dates with his All Starr Band that are scheduled in October, after he celebrates his 74th birthday.

“Everyone, everywhere around the world” is invited to join the famous drummer in a Peace & Love celebration on July 7 at 12 p.m. local time. If you’d like to mark the occasion in person with Ringo, he’ll be in Los Angeles at the front of the Capitol Records building.
