Ringo Starr announced Nov. 10 that he and his All Starr Band will begin a new series of tour dates to begin in February. The shows will start in the U.S., then travel to Mexico, Latin America and South America before returning to North America.
The new tour will begin in Louisiana with U.S. dates in Texas, Alabama, South Carolina and Florida, then hit the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. It then moves to South America for dates in Brazil, Chile and Columbia. The final swing will feature it moving back to North America for dates in Mexico and California before winding up in Las Vegas March 15.
The band, featuring Steve Lukather, Richard Page, Gregg Rolie, Todd Rundgren, Gregg Bissonette and Warren Ham, is basically the same band he's played with since 2012. “We have so much fun playing together we don’t want it to end!," Starr says. He has also praised touring in Latin America, saying, “The audiences were just great and so loving, we can’t wait to go back."
Ringo and the All-Starr Band spent June and July of 2014 on tour in the U.S. That tour, announced in January, began in June in Ontario, Canada, and covered dates in New York, Virginia, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, North Carolina, Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, California, Washington and a few dates in Canada. In February 2014, Simon & Shuster published"Octopus's Garden," a children's book based on Ringo's lyrics that also included a CD of him singing a new version of the song.
