Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band will return to Atlanta for the first time in five years with a show this fall.
Starr and his gang since 2012 – Todd Rundgren, Gregg Rolie, Steve Lukather, Richard Page, Warren Ham and Gregg Bissonette – will perform at 8 p.m. Nov. 11 at the Fox Theatre.
Tickets are $45-$145 and will go on sale at 10 a.m. April 7 at the Fox box office, www.foxtheatre.org and by calling 1-855-285-8499.
“The dream is still unfolding,” Starr said in the tour announcement. “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.”
Starr and the All Starrs will launch the tour with an eight-date run throughout October at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas (those tickets are on sale at 1 p.m. March 31 via www.ticketmaster.com).
When Starr and the band played the Fox in July 2012, songs from Toto, Mr. Mister, Rundgren and Santana were woven in among Beatles classics and Starr solo hits including “Photograph” and “It Don’t Come Easy.”
