Ringo Starr at The Joint

31 May 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Hard Rock Hotel & Casino - Tulsa is proud to announce that, after touring through Europe, Ringo Starr and His All Starr Band will launch the U.S. leg of their 2018 tour at The Joint: Tulsa on 1 September.

Tickets start at $89 and go on sale 7 June.

Starr and His All Starr Band will feature classic hit after hit, with each band member bringing to the set their most popular songs.

The 2018 All Starr Band includes Colin Hay (“Who Can It Be Now,” “Land Down Under”), Steve Lukather (“Africa,” “Hold the Line,” “Roseanna”), Gregg Rolie (“Black Magic Woman,” “Evil Ways”) and new member Graham Gouldman of 10cc (“I’m Not in Love,” “Things We Do For Love”). On percussion and sax is Warren Ham and on drums Gregg Bissonette.

Starr has often called the All Starrs “the best 1-800-band in the land.” When talking about his 2018 tour he said, “There is no greater joy for me than playing great music with great musicians. Every night we get to play for all those loving people, and it makes the hassle of touring worth it.”

Born Richard Starkey on July 7, 1940, Starr knew he wanted to be a drummer at a young age. On 18 August 1962, he officially joined The Beatles with Paul McCartney, John Lennon and George Harrison and became one of the most important, popular music acts of all time.

The job catapulted Starr to one of the world’s brightest musical luminaries. Starr has enjoyed a successful, dynamic solo career as a singer, songwriter, drummer, collaborator and producer, releasing 18 solo studio albums to date.

He is also an acclaimed actor appearing in more than 15 films. Drawing inspiration from classic blues, soul, country, honky-tonk and rock ‘n’ roll, he continues to play an important recording, touring and unofficial mentoring role in modern music.

Starr has been awarded numerous prestigious honors such as the French Medal of Honor, the David Lynch Foundation’s “Lifetime of Peace & Love Award,” two Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductions and most recently became a Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire for his services to music at Buckingham Palace.
