Ringo Starr Tour Lights Up Starlight Oct. 4
2014-06-02 CATEGORY: Concerts
Fans of The Beatles were overjoyed to see and hear Ringo Starr reunite with bandmate Paul McCartney for a rare performance at the 2014 Grammy Awards in January. Now fans in Kansas City have more reason to be joyful because Starr, the legendary Beatles drummer, is hitting the road this summer on a U.S. tour that will bring him to Starlight Theatre on Oct. 4.
Ringo Starr and the 2014 All Starr Band Tour is the newest addition to the Capitol Federal Concert Series. Joining Starr on the tour are guitarist Steve Lukather, singer Richard Page, keyboardist Gregg Rolie, multi-instrumentalist Todd Rundgren and drummer Gregg Bissonette — all of whom have scored hits in their own careers, many of which will be incorporated into the tour's set list of songs.
Guests will be serenaded under the stars with Starr's classics like "Yellow Submarine" and "Photograph," mixed in with Rolie's "Black Magic Woman," Lukather's "Africa," Rundgren's "I Saw the Light," Page's "Broken Wings" and more.
"I love playing with this band," Starr said in promoting the upcoming tour, "and I can't wait to get back out and play with them again." He added that he draws inspiration from classic blues, soul, country, honky-tonk and rock 'n' roll.
Since beginning his career as drummer with The Beatles in the 1960s, Starr has enjoyed a successful and dynamic solo career as an artist, singer, songwriter, drummer, musical collaborator and actor.
