Former fab four Ringo will launch his 31-date, All-Starr Band tour at Fallsview Casino Resort in Niagara Falls, Ont., on June 19-20. We’re very glad to see that he’s feeling great and he has such big plans!Last month he confirmed to Sun Media during a teleconference interview that he will be returning to Canada to prepare and launch his new tour. Also, Rolling Stones announced the 2008 lineup, which will be just fantastic!
It includes Colin Hay (Men at Work), Edgar Winter, Hamish Stuart (Average White Band), Billy Squier and the Dream Weaver himself, Gary Wright. Since 1989, Starr has toured with a big number of great musicians, and earlier this month, Starr was a presenter on the Grammys with the Eurythmics and Dave Stewart .
“I love playing,” Starr told Sun Media back in January. “A long, long time ago my mother said, ‘You’re always happy when you’re playing.’ And people say that today. I love to play. It’s just a thing that I’m blessed with.”
