2006 All Starr Band Tour - "Number 9"

Postby maccastheman » Tue Mar 21, 2006 6:46 pm

Ringo just announced his ninth All-Starr Band tour:

Pretty weak line-up IMHO. It would be worth it for Ringo alone, but I've seen better line-ups. (Let me clarify - I've never seen Ringo live, but I've read about better line-ups in the past. :wink: )[/i]

I was fortunate enough to have seen the first three installments of the All Starr Band. I actually referred to them as rock concerts. Joe Walsh on lead guitar. Billy Preston and Clarence Clemons. But this current installment...with Sheila E? is this easy listening or flashback to 80's dance music?

I think Ringo is pretty smart doing this. Even if you don't really care for Ringo's material, you have a bunch of others who might make the cut. I can see he's trying to please everyone and that a good thing.

I suppose that he reaches a larger audience this way. People who would not ordinarily see him live might, by way of seeing...whomever is performing with Ringo. I just find fault with his band. The new musicians don't appeal to me. But, hey, to each his own. Maybe thats why he didn't ask me if I approve.

I wish I could have seen one of those shows he did last year where it was just him - I think he did one in New York and one in Chicago. Seems like they were recording them both for a DVD or PBS or something???

Man, that's tough.

There are 2 remaining Beatles.

One is selling out high-end venues like New York's Madison Sq garden, Miami's American Airlines Arena and Omaha's Qwest Center.

The other one is playing casinos, small amphitheatres and....a winery?

Unacceptable!

Hey Paul, have you ever considered adding a 2nd drummer to your band?
Or....signing Ringo's All Stars as an opening act.

Ringo deserves to hear the thunder of tens of thousands.

Perhaps I can make the Easton gig, he seems to always play that venue. I've never seen him live, the wife and I would love it. Hudson is a good collaborator and musician, I think Never Without You is one of Ringo's all-time better songs, great guitar. Argent is pretty cool. Not that big on Marx but his Grammy tune Dance With My Father was decent.

I think the sum total of the current bunch will make for a helluva backing band at the least. I'm almost glad he doesn't have the usual bigger names, that seemed to always detract from Ringo to me, I want to see RINGO, man! :o 8)

Cool. 8) Looks like Ringo will be playing Dallas after all. Might have to catch this one. I can't believe I haven't seen him yet. I keep putting it off.

I saw Ringo once as a guest drummer for the Beach Boys at an outdoor concert on Miami Beach back in 1984. It was a pretty good show at least
