You open your first European tour in six years and another legend – in the same city for her own concerts – shows up and joins in on one of your signature songs. That’s what happened Wednesday night (June 6) In Paris when Ringo Starr and His All-Starr Band opened their tour on the continent. During the finale – the Beatles’ “With a Little Help From My Friends” – none other than Joan Baez joined the fun to sing along.
Baez is currently playing the same venue – L’Olympia – for a series of 10 concerts as part of her Fare Thee Well tour.
The 2018 All Starr Band includes Colin Hay of Men at Work, Steve Lukather of Toto, Gregg Rolie of Santana and Journey and new member Graham Gouldman of 10cc. On percussion and sax is Warren Ham and on drums Gregg Bissonette.
