AT PALMS CASINO RESORT
LAS VEGAS – November 10, 2014 – Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band announced new tour dates today including a final tour stop at The Pearl inside Palms Casino Resort on March 15, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $69, plus any additional service fees.
Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band – Steve Lukather, Richard Page, Gregg Rolie, Todd Rundgren, Gregg Bissonette and Warren Ham will embark on new tour dates beginning in February 2015 which takes the super group through a few stops in the U.S. before traveling throughout Latin America with shows in Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Brazil, Chile, Mexico and more.
This incarnation of the All Starr band is the same lineup Ringo has played with since 2012, and the addition of these new dates comes as no surprise to anyone who has heard Ringo talk about this band, with whom he loves performing. “We have so much fun playing together, we don’t want it to end!”
About Ringo Starr
On Jan. 20, 2014 Ringo Starr’s musical legacy was celebrated when The David Lynch Foundation honored him with the ‘Lifetime of Peace & Love Award.’ The event included star-studded tributes to Ringo’s extensive catalog that was broadcast on AXS July 13, 2014. Participating artists included Joe Walsh, Ben Harper, Ben Folds, Brendan Benson, Bettye LaVette, The Head & The Heart and Jesse Elliot and Lindsey McWilliams of Ark Life, with an equally stellar backing band featuring Don Was, Benmont Tench, Peter Frampton, Steve Lukather and Kenny Arnoff.
Jan. 26, 2014 saw Ringo perform his song “Photograph” on the GRAMMYS, followed by him jumping on the kit during his old band mate, Paul McCartney’s performance. Ringo and Paul then performed together again the following evening, this time playing several songs for the Emmy Award-nominated taping of CBS’ “The Beatles, A Grammy Salute; The Night That Changed America,” celebrating the 50th Anniversary of their first U.S. visit and appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show. It was broadcast on the exact anniversary, Feb. 9, and aired again Feb. 12, as well as internationally broadcast.
In February 2014, Simon & Shuster published “Octopus’s Garden,” a children’s book based on Ringo’s lyrics. This book arrived on the heels of December of last year’s “PHOTOGRAPH,” the Genesis Publications. “PHOTOGRAPH” was first released as an e-book in conjunction with The GRAMMY Museum exhibit “Ringo: Peace & Love,” a record-breaking exhibit that drew more than 120,000 visitors in its run from June 2013 to late April 2014. It was also the first ever major exhibit to focus on a drummer.
On July 7 John Varvatos announced that Ringo would be featured in his Fall 2014 advertising campaign and as Ringo joked, “making his dream to be a male model come true.” The campaign also benefited the David Lynch Foundation with a dynamic social media component in which fans were called to upload a photo of themselves making the peace sign and tagging the post with #peacerocks. For each photo tagged, John Varvatos donates a dollar to the Foundation.
Summer and October 2014 saw Ringo tour North America with his All Starr Band, the same line up since 2012 who also toured in 2013 the Pacific Rim in February and then in October in Latin America, concluding with two Stateside shows at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. The summer tour also included exhibits of Ringo’s artwork, which can be seen at www.RingoStarrArt.com. In September 2013 Ringo was awarded the prestigious French Medal of Honor, being appointed Commander of Arts & Letters in recognition of his musical and artistic contributions. Ringo’s most recent solo release was Ringo 2012 (Hip-O Records/UMe). In January 2013 UMe released the live DVD “Ringo at the Ryman” and on April 20 that same year, in conjunction with Record Store Day, UMe released a Ringo Starr seven-inch vinyl singles collection, featuring “Photograph,” “It Don’t Come Easy” and “(It’s All Down To) Goodnight Vienna.”
Doors at the Pearl will open at 6:30 p.m. and show time is 7:30 p.m. The Pearl Box Office is open daily from noon until 7 p.m. with extended hours on select event days. Follow The Pearl on Twitter at @PearlatPalms for concert announcements and event information.
