Ringo Starr has announced his 30th anniversary tour plans with the latest edition of his All Starr Band. The 2019 lineup will feature all veteran All Starr's -- including Toto's Steve Lukather, Men At Work's Colin Hay, Santana and Journey co-founder Gregg Rolie, along with percussionist Warren Ham and drummer Gregg Bissonette. Returning to the group will be Hamish Stuart from the Average White Band and longtime Paul McCartney sideman. The first leg begins in March with one U.S. show at Harrah’s Resort Southern California set for March 21st before the tour heads to Japan for a nine-date run. So far, there are six North American dates on the books, with a full itinerary still to be announced.

According to the tour announcement, "August 2019 marks the 30th Anniversary of Ringo & His All Starr Band and they will hit the road for a celebratory tour which will kick off at Caesar's in Windsor on August 1st and then head to Ravinia near Chicago, Illinois to play two shows with the Beach Boys on August 3rd and 4th and two shows at Nashville’s historic Ryman in Tennessee on August 7th and 8th. The tour will conclude September 1st at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles, California -- nearly 30 years to the day when the inaugural All Starr's completed their first tour on September 3, 1989."

With nearly 30 years worth of gigs under his belt, we asked Ringo to recall how he felt back in 1989 when he was launching his first All Starr Band tour, which marked not only his first ever solo road dates -- but his first tour since the Beatles called it quits after their 1966 North American trek: "I was real nervous, I had never done it before. Y'know, it was presented to me -- 'Would you like to do this if we have a sponsor?' And I thought, 'Wow. Let's see.' And I was nervous, but it worked then and it's working now."
August 7, 8 - Nashville, TN - Ryman Auditorium
September 1 - Los Angeles, CA - Greek Theatre
