Ringo Starr and his friends in the All-Starr Band return to Iowa this summer.
The famed Beatle brings his group of classic rock hit makers Aug. 23 to Stir Cove in Council Bluffs. The show stops in western Iowa as part of the All-Starr Band's 30th anniversary tour.
Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. and start at $112.50 before fees, per Ticketmaster.com.
Starr played central Iowa last fall, a two-hour concert at Stephens Auditorium in Ames, his first area gig since headlining the Iowa State Fair Grandstand in 1992.
The summer's All-Starr Band lineup includes:
- Former Santana lead singer Gregg Rolie
- Longtime Toto guitarist and singer Steve Lukather
- Former Men at Work frontman Colin Hay
- Former Average White Band musician and vocalist Hamish Stuart
One of two surviving Beatles members, Starr led 1960s favorites such as "With A Little Help From My Friends," "Yellow Submarine" and "Octopus's Garden." Famed solo work from Starr includes "Photograph," "It Don't Come Easy" and "Back Off Boogaloo."
Hits from the All-Starr Band performed in Ames last year include Toto's "Africa," Men At Work favorites "Down Under" and "Who Can It Be Now?" and Santana classic "Evil Ways."
Starr released his latest studio album, "Give More Love," in 2017. The beloved peace advocate and two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member plans to release his third book of unpublished photographs, "Another Day In The Life," in April.
