Thursday, August 1, 2019 Windsor, Ontario -- 2019 marks the 30th Anniversary of Ringo and his All Starr Band, who played their first show on July 23, 1989 at the Park Central Ampitheatre in Dallas, Texas, and tonight Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band kick off their North American tour dates in Windsor Ontario at Colosseum Caesar’s.

Fittingly, the Ringo and His All Starr 30th Anniversary 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.

The first leg of 2019 tour dates began with one US show at Harrah’s Resort Southern California on March 21st before the band headed to Japan, with dates that began in Fukuoka on March 27th , including multiple sold out dates in Tokyo and ended in Osaka on April 11th .

The 2019 All Starr Band features Steve Lukather, Colin Hay, Gregg Rolie, Warren Ham, Gregg Bissonette and the return of All Starr alum Hamish Stuart.

 

From Windsor Ontario, Ringo and the band commented: “In 1989 I put together the best 1-800-band in the land and I've been blessed to have been playing with so many brilliant All Starrs since. How incredible to be here 30 years later with this group of great musicians and friends about to launch another All Starr Tour. We can't wait to see you out there on the road. Peace and Love, Ringo"   

Steve Lukather: "These past 7 years have been some of the best times of my life. I feel like it's a new home and I have made some soulful new friendships that mean the world to me + they all happen to be some my favorite musicians! The best part is having Ringo as a real friend. I have learned so much from him and all in this band.  I love everyone in this organization and I am deeply honored to be a small part of something so cool! "

Gregg Rolie: “I can't believe I've been playing with Ringo for 7 years!  It's Awesome!!”

Colin Hay: “When you get asked to be part of Ringo’s All Starr Band, you don’t think about it, you simply say yes. There was The Beatles, and then there was everyone else. We play in his band with pleasure and joy, because it’s Ringo, and we love him. There is only one. Happy 30th.”

Hamish Stuart: "I recall very well the last thing I said to Ringo as we parted company at the end of my last All Starrs outing. "Anytime, anywhere, I'll be there". Kind of says it all really. We all love the man and he makes this a wonderful thing to be a part of so I was totally "jazzed" to get the call for this 30th anniversary tour and couldn't wait to get started. Heart and Soul. Here we GO!"

Gregg Bissonette: “It is an incredible honor to be a member of Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band since 2008. I get SO much joy out of having the privilege to be the other drummer in the band along side my favorite drummer of all time and great friend Ringo. Touring the world in this great band and helping to spread Ringo’s message of Peace and Love is the most incredible dream come true that I could ever imagine!”

Warren Ham: "It's just exciting for me today on the All Starrs anniversary as it was when I first came on board in 2014! I can't believe I get to play with Ringo Starr and all these other great musicians! Such a thrill and privilege!!"

I was married for 13 years. My marriage has been deteriorating for some time so it was bound to unravel. I was her loyal, faithful supportive and trusting Husband. She had an additional wild side that went out of control. The last incident was when I found out that she was having an affair 2 weeks before our 14th wedding anniversary. Out of the blue my wife just sprung the divorce talk on me. I was so hurt and being a man, I thought I could cope with being single. It was so hard to move on so i had to reach out for help online. Our marriage and family therapists thought that "something" was not right about my wife. I went online and i found out about Dr Ogweshan and his good spell work reviews. I contacted him and explained my situation to him and he told me not worry that my wife will come back to me after 3 days. 3 days later in the morning around 09:34am I was totally shocked on how my wife called me telling me how much she missed me. His spell worked on me so fast and my wife has been so loving, Natural and I'm having a happy marriage after using his love spell. If you are in a loveless and unhappy marriage that cannot be salvaged, believe me...There is light at the end of this tunnel. You can reach him on his contact details.
