Ringo Starr announces the 13th iteration of his All Starr Band and new tour dates through Europe and Israel.  After six years with the same band, Ringo welcomes Colin Hay back to the group and as well as new member Graham Gouldman of 10cc (I’m Not In Love, Things We Do For Love, Dreadlock Holiday, Wall Street Shuffle). Hay and Gouldman join existing All Starrs Steve Lukather, Gregg Rolie, Warren Ham and Gregg Bissonette.

 

In June, the All Starrs embark on a 21 date tour that will kick off in Paris France and includes shows in Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Monaco, Netherlands and Israel, concluding in Italy.  The last time the All Starrs toured Europe was 2011.

 

The All Starrs just finished a tour that started with a Las Vegas residency and ended with a performance at New York City’s Beacon Theater. The band is supporting Starr’s new album, Give More Love.

 

“While almost none of the songs are less than 30 years old, it should be noted (underlined, with asterisks) that Ringo Starr and His All-Starr Band is not a nostalgia act. “Nostalgia” implies something static, irrelevant, and vaguely frivolous. No, Starr and his merry band are much too vibrant for that, and the message of peace and love that they sing is just as relevant today. Besides, legends never go out of style.” – People Magazine

The decision to play Tel Aviv is heartbreaking. I have been a fan since 1964, followed you and your career, knowing that you are one of the last to genuinely believe in peace and love. But peace and love does not exist as a policy in Israel. Beligerent occupation, brutal subjugation, apartheid policies, acts of genocide and overt contempt for international law. The boycott was requested by the Palestinian people to make a point. Israel will use your performance, throw it in the face of the world to help legitimise their brutality. You can still change your mind.

There's something that you are missing through all the history.Israel land is the home of the jewish people and there are historic proofs.During the fuckin' holocaust and after, the jewish people had to decide where to live in order  not to get the same horror they had with the Nazis.The jewish were exiled, yes, e x i l e d from Israel land and that's why they lived in Europe.After WWII, the only natural thing to do is to go back.All over the years and before the establishment of Israel in 1948, the Palestinians only used terror and killed Men, Women, Children...same feeling you had during the last 2 years in the UK. 

The Israeli leadership has agreed to the UN land division and the Palestinians refused.Instead, they chose to start a war in 1948 in which they lost.In 1967, following a major intelligence information, the Arab countries around Israel planned to distruct Israel. So we had no choice but defend ourselves.Let's go to 1993. We had Yitzhak Rabin as prime minister from the Labor Party and he signed with Yasser Arafat the Oslo agreement.The IDF trained Palestinians officers and you know what we got back ?Exploding busses. Imagine yourself that everyday you go to the university or work, you don't know if you or your beloved ones goes back home!Arafat gave a green light to those attacks and knew how to make the play infront of the media.Besides, the Arab popularity in Israel is prosperous. You can take for example Lucy Aharish, a very popular journalist which set a goal for co-existence and the majoirity of our country supports her.The problem is that from the other side, you have nothing to talk to.To get peace, it should be mutual not one sided.They are not stopping their own terrorists and nevertheless,since you don't live in Israel, you don't know the facts.And for conclusion, you see in London and even in Manchester how terror looks like.Imagine that you have to deal with it on a daily basis since you know yourself.

We have a good government and their policy keeps Israelis safe.We had lots of artists coming through all over the years : Elton John, Ozzy Osbourne, Scorpions, Pretenders, Bryan Adams, Tom Jones, Alan Parsons, Guns N' Roses, Aerosmith and it keeps on going because they see the truth!

Ringo, we are waiting for you and the All Starr Band for your coming!
