Ringo Starr is picking up his drum sticks for a tour of the United States—with a little help from his friends in the All-Starr Band.
Beginning Friday (Oct. 13) with an eight-night residency at Las Vegas’ Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, the trek will continue across the country before concluding in Newark, New Jersey on Nov. 16.
Starr will be backed by the longest incarnation of his ever-evolving supergroup, including luminaries like power-pop wizard Todd Rundgren, Toto’s guitar great Steve Lukather, Richard Page of Mr. Mister, and Gregg Rolie, who recently reunited with his old bandmates in Santana.
“The dream is still unfolding,” the 77-year-old rock icon said in a statement. “I love to play, and I love to play with this band. I can’t say that enough, and we’re on the road again.”
In addition to Beatle hits and his solo classics, he’ll have some new music to share. In September Starr released his 19th solo album, Give More Love, featuring performances by Luthaker, Peter Frampton, the Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart, Joe Walsh, and a guy called Paul McCartney (perhaps you’ve heard of him).
Appropriately enough, the opening track is a full-throttle rock ‘n’ roll tune called “We’re on the Road.” More than just a title, it’s become a way of life for Starr.
“The playing is what it’s all about,” he told PEOPLE recently. “That’s why I’m touring, that’s why I make records. That’s why I play with a lot of the people who ask me. I just love to play. I’m in a profession and a position where I can just play for as long as I can. As long as I can hold the sticks! That’s what it’s all about.”
