Ringo Starr Kicks Off 15th All-Starr Band Tour With Beatles, Toto, Santana and Isley Brothers Hits

Saturday, August 03, 2019

Ringo Starr has kicked off plenty of tours with his All-Star Bands over the years. But Thursday night's (Aug. 1) start of the Beatles drummer's latest sojourn had some particularly special meaning.

It's been just over 30 years -- since July 23, 1989 -- that Starr launched his first All-Starr Band outing, a corps that included brother-in-law Joe Walsh, Dr. John, Billy Preston, Rick Danko and Levon Helm of The Band, and Clarence Clemons and Nils Lofgren of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band. His similarly well-credentialed 15th lineup, meanwhile, showed the state of the All-Starrs is still solid, delivering a characteristically hit-filled, just over two-hour show before a packed and exuberant house at Caesars Windsor on the south shore of the Detroit River.
