Ringo Turns 70 and Celebrates with Peace and Love

This July 7, 2010 Ringo will turn 70 and he will celebrate his birthday in New York City. At Noon Ringo will be joined by family, friends and fans all together in one simple salute: “Peace & Love”.

The genesis of the July 7 Peace & Love Celebrations began in 2008 when Ringo was asked during an interview with Access Hollywood, “what would you like for your coming birthday?” and he replied “more Peace & Love.” That launched a Peace & Love campaign, and Ringo encouraged everyone everywhere to say Peace & Love at Noon their local time. The idea took hold and on July 7 2008, a wave of Peace & Love swept the planet, with Ringo and Barbara joining throngs of fans and Peace & Lovers on the streets of Chicago in front of the Hard Rock Hotel.

The Hard Rock International will once again host various celebrations around the world, with additional spontaneous Peace & Love events cropping up everywhere. (In 2008 Peace & Love events occurred at the Hard Rock Hotel in Chicago, LA, New York, and Florida as well as happening at Abbey Road in London, one at Capitol Records in Los Angeles and one at Strawberry Fields in New York's Central Park).

Please join the wave of Peace & Love as it continues this July 7 2010. Whether you say it along with a crowd, out loud as you go about your day, Tweet it or simply think the words, we hope you will join Ringo in celebrating ‚"Peace & Love" wherever you are at Noon your local time.

Other noon celebrations

  • London will celebrate with a Peace & Love moment at Abbey Road.
  • In Los Angeles, fans will gather for a Peace & Love moment in front of Capitol Records, and at Ringo's star on the walk of fame, Hollywood & Vine.
  • The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, celebrates Ringo's birthday by unveiling one of Ringo's drums on display as of July 7; Also tied to the premiere of PBS artists den performance taped earlier this year at The Met with Ringo and Ben Harper and Relentless 7 Broadcasts, nationally from the week of July 5th.

Many Thanks
