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’m so excited my broken Marriage has been restored. “We recently made up, even though it was difficult. It’s been more than a month now, and everything feels like it’s returned to normal.

Everything changed after I consulted Dr. Ken who happened to be the best and straight forward spell caster, my marriage was hell before 2019 when i meant and contacted this Dr. I cried day and night. I could see my marriage falling apart despite all my efforts to make it work. Finally My husband left me and our kid for another lady he came across on face book and when he sent me divorce papers I immediately fell sick. It was at that point that a friend of mine visited and referred me to Dr. Ken. She helped me rescue my marriage through this great spell caster to cut a long story short My husband came back home after 48hours he performed the spell for me and the other woman went back to Australia. And now I am still amazed how the man called Dr . Ken does the things he does to restore my relationship and to bring my man home again as I now enjoy every bit of my marriage. Our life is now like heaven on earth. Thank you Dr. Ken for being sincere and keeping your promise. Dr. Ken’s contact via Email; drkenlovespell@gmail.com Tel / whatsapp him on +1(201)992 1012 .
