Ringo Starr announces All-Starr Band summer tour

Ringo Starr has announced the lineup and North American summer tour dates for the 2014 edition of his All-Starr Band.

Joining the former Beatle will be Toto's Steve Lukather, Mr. Mister's Richard Page, original Santana singer Gregg Rolie, Todd Rundgren and drummer Gregg Bissonette.

Shows begin June 6 at Casino Rama in Rama, Ontario (about 2 hours north of Toronto), and wrap up July 19 at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles.

"I love playing with this band," said Starr, "and I can't wait to get back out and play with them again."

Ringo is planning to mark his 74th birthday during the trip with a "Peace & Love" celebration on July 7 in Los Angeles; details will be announced at a later date.

The drummer was honored as part of Grammy celebrations this past weekend, when The Beatles were presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Recording Academy.

Ringo also performed solo and with Paul McCartney on The Grammy Awards broadcast, joining the singer for one of his new songs, “Queenie Eye.”
