Ringo Starr announces 2020 tour with All Starr Band, 2 Canadian dates

On Oct. 25, Ringo Starr released his latest studio album, What’s My Name? And he’s just unveiled plans to take it on the road.

That’s right. According to Billboard, the former Beatles drummer will embark on a 20-date North American tour along with his longtime backing band, the All-Starr Band.

Starr, 79, and co. will commence the tour on May 29, 2020 at Casino Rama, in Rama, Ont., before bringing the most recent album to the U.S.

This leg of the What’s My Name? tour concludes in Clearwater, Fla. on June 28, where Ringo Starr & His All Starr Band will be joined by American songwriting legend, Edgar Winter.

Though Rama is currently the only scheduled Canadian show on the mini-trek, the band will perform there for two nights in a row.

What’s My Name? serves as Starr’s 20th solo album overall, and yes, that doesn’t include The Beatles’ discography.

The album includes 10 brand new tracks, as well as a plethora of special musical guests.

What’s My Name? also features song credits from not only the other three Beatles — Paul McCartney, John Lennon and George Harrison — but a plethora of other musical guests, too, including Joe Walsh, Edgar Winter, Steve Lukather and Dave Stewart.

Full tour date listings, updates, and additional information can be found through Starr’s official website.
