Ex-Beatle Ringo Starr will return to Mexico with his All-Starr Band to give three concerts in the Mexican capital on Nov. 13, 14 and 19, the National Auditorium said Saturday.
“This is the second time the ex-Beatle, considered by many to be the best rock drummer of all time, presents his show ‘Ringo Starr and his All-Starr Band’ at the auditorium on Avenida Reforma,” the company said in a communique.
It said that on this occasion the British artist, who became a legend as part of the band that transformed pop music in the 1960s, will be accompanied by a different lineup of musicians in his All-Starr Band.
The musicians accompanying him are guitarist Steve Lukather, Richard Page on bass, keyboard player Gregg Rolie, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Todd Rundgren, saxophone player and percussionist Mark Rivera, and drummer Gregg Bissonette.
The appearance in Mexico is part of a Pacific tour that in October began visiting various Latin American countries.
The repertoire of the concerts includes numbers from the time of the Beatles and from his solo career, plus songs by the musicians accompanying him.
Over the past 10 years, the ex-Beatle has launched the discs “Ringo Rama” in 2003, “Choose Love” in 2005, “Liverpool 8” in 2008, “Y Not” in 2010, in which he collaborated with Paul McCartney, and “Ringo 2012,” his 16th studio album, with which he launched his current concert tour, the communique said.
Since the beginning of his career with The Beatles in the 1960s, Ringo Starr has enjoyed success and a dynamic solo career as a singer, composer, drummer and even as an actor.
