Starr Studded: Supergroup To Play Eight Nights At Planet Hollywood

RINGO STARR is once again hitting the road with his longest-running All Starr Band. The national tour this fall kicks off in Las Vegas with eight shows at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. This version of his All Starr Band—which features singersongwriter Todd Rundgren, keyboardist Gregg Rolie, guitarist Steve Lukather, bassist Richard Page, saxophonist Warren Ham and drummer Gregg Bissonette—has been touring together since 2012. “The dream is still unfolding,” the former Beatles drummer says. “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.”

What attracted you to open the tour with eight shows in Las Vegas?
Anywhere I can play attracts me. It’s so great to do eight gigs in the same venue. And whenever I want I can go home, because I live in L.A.

Is performing in Las Vegas different from perform- ing in other cities?
It’s a little different because every night is a holiday crowd, mixed with the locals.

What do you remember about your first Vegas show with The Beatles in 1964?
That is was a lot different than it is now. You looked out your window and you could actually see a lot of  land.

This All Starr Band formed in 2012. What makes this line-up so special?
Come to the gig and you’ll find out!

Do you have a favorite song to perform live?
It has to be ‘With a Little Help from My Friends.’ Everybody, including me, loves that  song.
