RINGO STARR AND HIS ALL STARR BAND ANNOUNCE UK DATES
For immediate release
London 2nd March 2011 – Live Nation and Hampton Court has today announced that Ringo Starr will be hitting the road this June for six very special UK dates with his All Starr Band, including shows in Liverpool, Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow, Bournemouth and an appearance at Hampton Court Palace Festival.
Since beginning his career with The Beatles in the 1960s, Ringo Starr has been one of the world’s brightest musical luminaries. He has enjoyed a successful and dynamic solo career as a singer, songwriter and drummer, an active musical collaborator, and as an actor. Drawing inspiration from classic blues, soul, country, honky-tonk and rock ‘n’ roll, Ringo continues to play an important role in modern music with his solo recording and touring.
Ringo Starr’s music, as a solo artist and as a Beatle, is permeated with his personality. His warmth and humor, and his exceptional musicianship have given us songs we all know and love, including “With A Little Help From My Friends,” “Don’t Pass Me By,” “Octopus’ Garden,” “Photograph,” “It Don’t Come Easy,” “Back Off Boogaloo,” “You’re Sixteen (You’re Beautiful And You’re mine),” “Don’t Go Where the Road Don’t Go,” “The No No Song,” and “Never Without You.”
These shows are bound to be one of the highlights of the 2011 live calendar and tickets are bound to fly out the door, so don’t miss your chance to see one of music’s all time greats this summer.
