Starr was drummer for the Beatles, the foremost supergroup of the rock ’n’ roll era, from 1962 until the group disbanded in 1970. After the break-up, he forged a solo career, with U.S. Top 10 hits including “It Don’t Come Easy,” Photograph” and “You’re Sixteen.” He has toured with the All Starr Band since 1989.
In an interview published Aug. 4, the Beatles drummer told Bloomberg Businessweek that he believes the Beatles would have reunited, in time. “We would have gotten over our difficulties and gotten on the road again,” Starr said. He also told Bloomberg, “I’m always touring.”
The Honolulu concert, presented by Elite Entertainment and Invictus Entertainment Group, follows dates on the West Coast, in Japan and South Korea.
After the Honolulu show, the All Starr Band — guitarist Steve Lukather (Toto), multi-instrumentalist Todd Rundgren, keyboardist Gregg Rolie (Santana, Journey), bassist Richard Page (Mr. Mister), percussionist Gregg Bissonette (ELO) and saxophonist Warren Ham (Bloodrock, Kansas, AD) — will return to the western U.S. for shows in California, Nevada and Arizona.
