RINGO ANNUAL BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION + LP, TOUR UPDATE

By Posted on 1 5

Ringo recently announced this year’s plans to celebrate his birthday on Thursday, July 7, 2017, inviting family, friends and the public to come together in a moment of Peace & Love at Noon. This annual event will take place in front of the Capitol Records Tower in Hollywood, CA, starting at 11 a.m. as The Beatles’ drummer turns 77.

Among those joining Ringo at this year’s event: Joe Walsh, David Lynch, Edgar Winter, Eric Burdon, Jim Keltner, Nils Lofgren, Howie Mandell, current All Starr Band members Richard Page and Gregg Bissonette, and others.

Several of Ringo’s songs will be performed by Don Was with Jenny Lewis, Van Dyke Parks and Michael Bearden, and Emmanuel Jal and Paul Beaubrun.

As in previous years, Ringo invites everyone everywhere to think, say, or post #PeaceandLove at Noon their local time, thus generating a wave of Peace & Love that moves over the planet on July 7, starting at noon in New Zealand and ending at noon in Hawaii.

The Peace & Love birthday celebration was a concept born in 2008 when Ringo was asked in an interview “what would you like for your birthday.” He replied: “more Peace & Love.” This marked the beginning of a yearly tradition where Ringo has hosted events all over the world including NYC’s Time Square, Hamburg, Germany and Capitol Records in L.A.

Said Ringo recently: “I can’t think of a better way to celebrate my birthday, or a better gift I could ask for, then Peace & Love. How great that this idea keeps growing and spreading. Thanks to everyone supporting it. Peace & Love, Ringo.”

Ringo has revealed that he’s been recording a new album with a little help from his friends Paul McCartney, Joe Walsh, Peter Frampton, Lukather, Page and others. (On June 19, he tweeted a picture “with number one son”, Zak Starkey, implying that The Who drummer is among the classic rock stars participating.

In March, Starr announced fall tour dates with his longest-running All Starr Band. The current lineup of All Starrs–Todd Rundgren, Santana and Journey keyboardist Gregg Rolie, Toto guitarist Steve Lukather, Mr. Mister frontman and bassist Richard Page, saxophonist Warren Ham and drummer Gregg Bissonette–first came together in 2012 and has been touring together ever since.
