Ringo Starr and His All Starr Band coming to the F.M. Kirby Center in June
WILKES-BARRE — Ringo Starr and His All Starr Band — featuring Todd Rundgren, Gregg Rolie, Steve Lukather, Richard Page, Warren Ham and Gregg Bissonette — has announced another string of North American shows, including a stop at the F.M. Kirby Center on June 14 at 7:30 p.m.
The concert, featuring the former Beatle, marks the first event in the Kirby Center’s new PNC Celebrity Series.
Tickets go on sale Friday, April 1 at 10 a.m. and will be available online at kirbycenter.org, at the Kirby Box Office and charge by phone at 570-826-1100. A special Kirby Members Pre-Sale will begin this Wednesday at 10 a.m. Members buy first, so join today at (570) 823-4599, ext. 225.
Ticket prices are $165, $125 and $85, plus fees
The tour kicks off on June 3 in Syracuse, New York, and wraps up with two dates in California — July 1 in San Diego and July 2 in Los Angeles.
This current All Starr line up is the 12th and longest running, and as Ringo recently told The Boston Globe, “I love this band — we have a lot of fun together on and offstage, so here we come again.”
That love is evident in their performances, exemplified by this review in the Sarasota Tribune-Herald: “This latest incarnation of Starr’s travelling show has been together now going on three years and watching them interact as an actual band, rather than a supergroup taking turns out front, is almost as fun as watching and screaming “I love you” at the front man who will forever be part of the biggest rock ‘n’ roll band of all time.”
