I saw the first All-Starr Band tour, and it was really great fun...the list of great folks he's worked with is jaw dropping, but...and it is a GIANT BUT...the last few tours have been, in my humble opinion, just embarrassingly awful lineups. I pray that he is able to gather some great again, and not go out in such pathetic fashion as the last couple. Going from Levon Helm, Rick Danko, Dave Edmunds, Tood Rundgren, Ian Hunter, Joe Walsh, John Entwhistle, Clarence Clemons, Dr. John, Nils Lofgren, Billy Preston, Greg Lake, Jack Bruce, Gary Brooker etc., etc. to recent outings with John Waite, Richard Marx, Colin Hay, Billy Squire. Even the best members (Paul Carrack, Rod Argent & Edgar Winter, maybe Shelia E. too) would have been at the bottom of the bill in past years...talk about a artistic nose dive!!! What ahappened?!? Let's just hope he could back over the old list, make some phone calls and get together something decent for a change. The last one I thought was a good lineup was 2001. Maybe Dave Stewart will be helpful in this manner? I wish he'd just go out with The Roundheads, but who knows where exactly things are with Mark Hudson now...not bad certainly, but how good- given recent events...Blessings!!
Om Namah Shivaya !!!!

Has the new line-up been announced? I suspect Sheila E will return as she seems to have become a mainstay and it seems only logical that Dave Stewart should be included as well.
Man I could smell your breath a mile away.

sad... but true. i saw the first 4 or 5 different lineups...and the first was by far the best. they s l o w l y started getting more and more lame. so have the venues...for that matter. i'm fine with seeing a concert in a small setting. but have the decency to put a band on stage.

When he was at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Ct. on his last tour, they couldn't give his tickets away....literally for free. Even to the low frequency players such as myself. I got a card in the mail for free tickets, but didn't want to go. The day before the concert, they even called me that they would up the number of tickets from 2 to 6....they had such a load sitting there.

From what I've seen of the last few line-ups, it's a bad lounge act. Sorry Ringo....but I still love you!
