On the night of Sunday March 8th, Ex-Beatle and music living legend Ringo Starr appeared on stage at the Coliseo Yucatán and the audience went absolutely crazy with the performance of one of the greatest musical icons of all times.

During the first three songs, the former drummer of the Beatles remained at the front of his “All Star Band” featuring high end musicians such as Richard Page, Gregg Rolie, Todd Rundgren, Greg Bissonette and Warren Ham.

Gracias amigos” were his first words in Spanish after taking his place behind the drums to start making history in an unforgetable evening of music for Southeast Mexico.

The musician only programmed two concerts in Mexico, one in Merida, and other on Tuesday March 10 at the Auditorio Nacional in Mexico City.

Hola Merida como están” said guitar player Richard Page in Spanish, to continue in English: “I am very happy to be here with you tonight is a special night because we have a legend here,” while all pointed to Ringo.

When Ringo played the classic “Yellow Submarine” some of the attendees showed yellow balloons while chanting, clapping and raising their hands in the air.

The band played some of The Beatles hits as well as Ringo Starr’s songs such as You’re Sixteen and Photograph.

 

Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band International Tour started on February 13 in Louisiana, Texas, Birmingham, South Carolina, and Orlando Florida.

Afterwards, the tour continued throughout Latin America with shows in Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Brazil, Chile and Mexico.

The tour ends with 3 shows in the state of California, specifically in the cities Santa Ynez, San Francisco and San Diego. And finally, a last show in Las Vegas, Nevada.

 

Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band:

  • Steve Lukather (Toto)
  • Richard Page (Mr. Mister, Pages)
  • Gregg Rolie (Journey, Santana)
  • Todd Rundgren (Utopia)
  • Gregg Bissonette (David Lee Roth)
  • Warren Ham (Bloodrock, AD, The Four Seasons)

 

This incarnation of the All Starr band is the same line-up he has played with since 2012, and the addition of these new dates comes as no surprise to anyone who has heard Ringo talk about this band, with whom he loves performing.

“We have so much fun playing together; we don’t want it to end!” Ringo also loved touring in Latin America and said “the audiences were just great and so loving; we can’t wait to go back”.
