The Meyerhoff Symphony Auditorium was the venue that welcomed yesterday Ringo Starr and his All Star Band. Ringo hit the stage at 7:00 PM last night as the signs of Peace and Love among the audience were raising up in the air.
Ringo plays a mix of his solo and Beatles hits, then gives the spotlight to each of the All Star Band members (Steve Lukather (Toto), Gregg Rolie (Journey, Santana), Richard Page (Mr. Mister), Todd Rundgren (Utopia, Meat Loaf), Mark Rivera and Gregg Bissonette) for two or three songs. It felt like watching a live show of my Dad’s mix tape. Knowing already the members of the all Star Band you can expect some great songs coming along having players from Toto, Santana, Todd Rundgren, and Mr. Mister.
Starr kicked things off Sunday night with an opening trio of the Carl Perkins’ Matchbox, his hit It Don’t Come Easy, and Wings from his most recent album, Ringo 2012.
From there the band took the reins and the highlights began. Rolie’s Evil Ways got the first standing crowd ovation of the night. you could see how people enjoyed listening to the Santana Hit. Later the band started playing Toto’s hit Rosanna as Lukather made an incredible perfomance.
Starr then gave Beatles fans what they came for: Don’t Pass Me By , Yellow Submarine, and Boys, which he introduced as “a song I used to do with the other band I was in … Rory Storm and the Hurricanes!”
Before starting the song I’m the Greatest Ringo recalls that he is “gonna play a song that John Lennon wrote for me”. thou the song was a bit of a mood killer after the singalong of the Beatles Hits.
Page’s new song You Are Mine was well-received. Lukather worked the crowd up again for Hold the Line – Toto’s first hit – setting the stage for Starr to send fans home happy with Photograph, Act Naturally and With a Little Help From My Friends, which ended with a chorus of Lennon’s Give Peace a Chance.

The surviving Beatles have quashed the rumors of a possible “reunion” at the London Olympics in 2012.
Previously, it had been reported by U.K. newspaper The Sun that festival organizers were hoping to get Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr to perform together at the ceremonies, perhaps with members of the Harrison and Lennon families joining in to properly represent all four original Beatles.
Representatives for both McCartney and Starr have shot down those reports, with McCartney calling it “tabloid stuff.” A rep for Starr said “this is not true.”
Julian Lennon, who theoretically would have filled his father’s role on stage at this event, commented via his Facebook page: “There will NEVER be a Beatles reunion, because two of the members of the band have since passed… And NO ONE could, or should try to replace them.”
There is at least the possibility that McCartney himself might appear at the London Olympics, something he discussed in somewhat vague terms during an interview last month.
“Peace and love, peace and love.” That’ll be the message Ringo Starr has for the world this Thursday on his 71st birthday and he hopes they’ll have it, too. As he has for the past few years, Starr plans to make public his trademark call of “peace and love” as a birthday event.
The former Beatles drummer will appear at the Hard Rock Cafe in Hamburg, Germany, where he and the All-Starr Band are in the middle of their summer tour. Starr, wife Barbara Bach, friends and fans will appear at noon local time to say “peace and love” and spread the word. Starr hopes fans will join in by saying it out loud, tweeting it or simply thinking the words at noon wherever they are.

Ringo Starr podría tener próximamente su propio videojuego para computadora y dispositivos móviles. Según dio a conocer Uk.gamespot.com, el ex baterista de The Beatles ha registrado el nombre de “Ringo” para ser usado en un videojuego de computadora.
Junto con su nombre se agregó la descripción de video juego para computadora y “juegos para computadora descargables vía Internet y dispositivos inalámbricos,” lo cual podría tratarse de una aplicación también para aparatos móviles alrededor del mundo.
Hasta el momento el ex Beatle no ha desmentido los rumores y mucho menos ha querido emitir comentarios respecto a este posible nuevo proyecto.
