Press release:

SIR RINGO STARR AND HIS ALL STARR BAND ANNOUNCE PLANS FOR 2019, INCLUDING SPECIAL 30TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR (1989-2019)

Ringo’s new book Another Day In the Life, his third with Genesis Publications, to be released in Limited Edition and available in November 2018 and wide to follow in April 2019

Monday November 12, 2018 – Today Sir Ringo Starr announced tour plans for 2019 with his All Starr Band, featuring Steve Lukather, Colin Hay, Gregg Rolie, Warren Ham, Gregg Bissonette and the return of All Starr alum Hamish Stuart.

The first leg begins in March with one US show at Harrah’s Resort Southern California on March 21st before the band head to Japan, starting in Fukuoka on March 27th and ending April 11th in Osaka (full dates listed below). August 2019 marks the 30th Anniversary of Ringo and His All Starr Band and they will hit the road for a celebratory tour which will kick off at Caesar's in Windsor on August 1st and then head to Ravinia near Chicago, Illinois to play two shows with the Beach Boys August 3rd and 4th and two shows at Nashville’s historic Ryman in Tennessee on August 7th and 8th. The tour will conclude September 1st at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles, California, nearly 30 years to the day when the inaugural All Starrs completed their first tour on September 3, 1989. (A full itinerary will be announced soon).

This month Another Day In The Life, Ringo’s third book with Genesis Publications, will be released in Limited Edition, while the hard cover will available in wide release in April 2019. Pre-orders for the limited edition can be made at www.ringobook.com. Following in the series that began with the sell-out success of Postcards From The Boys (2003) and Photograph (2013), this book will include previously unpublished photographs, captioned with Ringo’s observations and anecdotes. Reflecting his love of music, travel and nature, Another Day In The Life shows us the world as seen through Ringo’s eyes. From Los Angeles to Tokyo and everywhere in between, many of Ringo’s observational images celebrate the quirkiness of life.

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 (see below for more information).

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.

I saw Genesis quietly changed its release date to December 2018 now ...

I really don't understand why Ringo won't play any dates in the U.K.

Roger Stormo said...

I think he would if somebody dared to book him. Anyway, that train has gone, his European tour has ended.

Edward Russell said...

I’m amazed he has gotten away with this for so long. The same old show year in year out. I saw it twice and that was enough. Don’t need him to do the U.K.

I saw him in Bournemouth (UK) a few years back, and the place was half empty. Not a big venue either.
I reckon if he did a small venue in Camden Town or something, and it was just him, doing tracks across his LPs, not just the same 4 Beatle songs, it might be really good.

I hadnt realised Ringo's gig's were that bad. here's a link to a review of the 2011 Bournemouth concert. https://www.bournemouthecho.co.uk/leisure/reviews/9106453.Ringo_Starr_and_his_All_Starr_Band__Bournemouth_International_Centre/

Pete Best probably offers better value for money, and the play he appeared in'Lennon's Banjo'got good reviews
