Categories: Top Stories

Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band set to launch a new U.S. tour next week with a Las Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, the ex-Beatles drummer has announced plans to pay tribute to the victims of the recent mass shooting in the city. Starr has dedicated the group’s first Vegas show, which takes place October 13, to the shooting victims, and also will make a donation to them from his Lotus Foundation charity.

Ringo and the All Starr Band will play a total of eight shows at Planet Hollywood through October 28, and then will move on to a variety of venues across the country, winding things down on November 16 in Newark, New Jersey.

The group’s lineup, which has remained constant for the last several years, features Todd Rundgren, ex-Santana and Journey member Gregg Rolie, Toto‘s Steve Lukather, Mr. Mister‘s Richard Page, Warren Ham, and Gregg Bissonette.

During the trek, Starr will be promoting his new solo album, Give More Love, which was released last month. The record features guest artists including Paul McCartney, Joe Walsh, Lukather, Peter Frampton, Richard Marx, Timothy B. Schmidt, Dave Stewart, Benmont Tench, Don Was, and Edgar Winter.

In other news, Ringo is selling signed prints of 12 images that are featured his 2013 book, Photograph. The limited-edition, large-format, high-quality pics include vintage photos that Starr took of his Beatles band mates. Proceeds raised from sales of the prints will benefit the Lotus Foundation.
