(A full itinerary will be announced soon).
November will also see Ringo honored when he receives the Humanitarian Award from the George Harrison Fund for UNICEF on “Giving Tuesday,” November 27, 2019 at their annual Snowflake Ball in New York City.
In a fitting comment taken from his upcoming book, Ringo wrote, “It’s about changing one second so that people think peace and love, it’s something I learned from the Maharishi. If you do something for good, the trees, the grass, the whole planet will support you – you’re always loved. I live in that world.”
That message of universal Peace & Love has become synonymous with Ringo, who has for over 10 years celebrated his birthday with a Peace & Love event. This July 7, 2019 will see it return to Los Angeles, and further details will be announced soon.
