Ringo Starr announces first NZ shows since 1964!
Today Ringo Starr announced that he and his All Starr Band will perform one show in Auckland and one show in Christchurch. The band is the same line up which just completed a North American summer tour and features Steve Lukather (Toto), Richard Page (Mr. Mister), Todd Rundgren, Mark Rivera, Gregg Rolie (Santana & Journey) and Gregg Bissonette.
"The tour this summer in the US was just GREAT - I love playing with this band and I can’t wait to get back out and play with them again,” Ringo said. “I am looking forward to revisiting New Zealand and bringing the All Starrs. Peace & Love!” The tour is being produced by Dave Hart and as always fans can expect to hear a jukebox worth of hits during this two-hour show, including Ringo classic’s such as “It Don’t Come Easy”, “Photograph”, “Little Help From My Friends”, “Yellow Submarine” and “Wings”, from Starr’s recently released 17th solo record, Ringo 2012 Out Now. The All Starr’s hits include “Rosanna,” “Broken Wings,” “Hello It’s Me,” “Black Magic Woman.” The February 2013 concerts will bring the legendary Beatle back to New Zealand for the first time since The Beatles 1964 tour down under.
