Ringo Starr, the internationally recognized percussionist from the Beatles, comes to Tanglewood with his long-running band of rotating luminaries, drawing inspiration from classic blues, soul, country, honky-tonk and rock ‘n’ roll.

His music has always come from warmth, humor and skill, he says, in well-known songs from With A Little Help From My Friends to Don’t Pass Me By, Octopus’ Garden, Photograph, It Don’t Come Easy, Back Off Boogaloo, Don’t Go Where the Road Don’t Go, The No No Song, and Never Without You.

Since beginning his career with The Beatles in the 1960s, he has led a solo career as a singer, songwriter, drummer, collaborator and producer – releasing 18 solo studio albums to date and appearing in over 15 films.

In 1989 Ringo assembled his first All Starr Band as a live act with his revolving All Starrs.

“I got asked if I’d be interested in putting a band together,” Ringo he said later. “I had been thinking the same thing, and so I went through my phone book, rang up a few friends and asked them if they’d like to have fun in the summer.”

Those friends included Joe Walsh, E-Streeters Clarence Clemmons and Nils Lofgren, former Band members Rick Danko and Levon Helm, Dr. John, Billy Preston, and Jim Keltner. The tour met with great success, yielding his first live album, Ringo and His All Starr Band, in 1990. “I’ve said this over and over again,” Ringo said, “but I love being in a band.”

Ringo Starr and his All-Starr Band have chosen to postpone their June 19, 2021 concert at Tanglewood to June 17, 2022.
