About Ringo Starr
Ringo Starr set to release "Postcards from Paradise"
At 74 years of age, Ringo Starr sure seems to have some pep in his step
On March 31, 2015 he'll release "Postcards from Paradise," his 18th solo studio album. It features performances from the likes of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers keyboardist Benmont Tech, bassist Nathan East, Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh, Dave Stewart and Peter Frampton (just to name a few really big stars).
A few weeks later, Starr will become the fourth and final member of The Beatles to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a solo artist. And later this spring, he'll step into his role as a celebrity spokesman for Skechers Relaxed Fit footwear. The marketing campaign is said to have a dual focus on Starr's personality and his drumming skills.
Starr just wrapped up the second month of a concert tour of South and North America with the current edition of his All Starr Band. It concludd with a show in San Diego at Pala, and included Todd Rundgren, Toto guitarist Steve Lukather and former Journey and Santana keyboardist and singr Gregg Rollie.
There is one show recently that Starr didn't make it to. He postponed an event at the Masonic in San Francisco due to illness, it was annouced by promoter Live Nation. Ticket holders to that show were encouraged to retain their tickets for the rescheduled date on October 1, 2015, or may request refunds at the original point of purchase.
Ringo's on the Road Again (Updated 12/6/2013)
For a man whose heyday had supposedly come some decades ago, Ringo Starr is proving to be quite the ironman.
He's certainly kept busy since recording a cover of Buddy Holly's "Think It Over" for a tribute album in 2011. The following year, he turned the tables and released his own material – his 16th studio album "Ringo 2012."
Even at the age of 73, there's no slowing down Ringo. He toured the Pacific Rim shortly after the album's release, stopping in New Zealand, Australia and Japan. It marked his first performance in the Land of the Rising Sun since 1996, and his debut in both New Zealand and Australia. And as soon as those dates were finished, he added another leg to the tour for 14 shows in Latin America and two in at The Palms in Las Vegas.
The Latin America tour kicked off October 29 in Sao Paulo, Brazil and wrapped November 18 in Monterrey, Mexico. Four days later Ringo invaded Sin City, and has continuously teased even more dates to come on his website.
Of course singing isn't the only thing keeping Ringo busy these days. He recently released "PHOTOGRAPH," a collection of never-before-seen material, including photos taken by Ringo as well as images from his own personal archives. The project was first published as an e-book in June, in conjunction with the Grammy Museum Exhibit, "Ringo: Peace & Love," where select images from the book were displayed. A limited-edition hand-bound book, signed by Ringo, followed in December.
About Ringo Starr tickets
What can one say about Ringo Starr? The humorous drummer for the Beatles, who gained his own following as the hapless, self-flagellating, endearing Brit, Ringo has become an icon himself, nurturing a career that, while enigmatic and celebratory, has endured, leading him from the Beatles to solo recordings, into movies and other pursuits. As a result, Ringo Starr is, more than anything else, a curiosity. Born Richard Starkey in 1940 in Liverpool, England, Ringo adopted his name because of the rings he wore as drummer for his first band, Rory Storm and the Hurricanes. He was asked to join the Beatles, replacing original drummer Pete Best, in 1960, and the band rocketed to rock and roll history shortly after, leading to a worldwide craze called Beatlemania. With the Beatles, Starr provided a dependable and steady back beat, but also contributed vocals, adding his forlorn sound to the hits 'With a Little Help From My Friends,' 'Yellow Submarine' and 'Act Naturally' among others. Because of his trust-worthy and creative-yet-simple drumming with the Beatles, Starr was named fifth-best drummer of all time by Rolling Stone Magazine. Since the Beatles' breakup in 1972, Starr has dabbled in several activities, acting in movies, such as Caveman in 1981, and on television, hosting TV's Thomas the Tank Engine children's show. Still, all the while, he has continuously recorded his music, releasing Y Not in 2010, while engaging in humanitarian projects around the world with other music icons. It's difficult to capture the life of one of pop's most beloved figures in short copy, but Ringo Starr tickets** are a much better way to witness the appeal, talent and pure entertainment of the man who was a Beatle.
