Former Beatle Ringo Starr to Perform with His All-Starr Band in Mexico 
- Wednesday, November 13, 2013

Ex-Beatle Ringo Starr will return to Mexico with his All-Starr Band to give three concerts in the Mexican capital on Nov. 13, 14 and 19, the National Auditorium said Saturday. “This is the second time the ex-Beatle, considered by many to be the best rock drummer of all time, presents his show ‘Ringo Starr and his All-Starr Band’ at the auditorium on Avenida Reforma,” the company said in a communique.

It said that on this occasion the British artist, who became a legend as part of the band that transformed pop music in the 1960s, will be accompanied by a different lineup of musicians in his All-Starr Band. The musicians accompanying him are guitarist Steve Lukather, Richard Page on bass, keyboard player Gregg Rolie, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Todd Rundgren, saxophone player and percussionist Mark Rivera, and drummer Gregg Bissonette. The appearance in Mexico is part of a Pacific tour that in October began visiting various Latin American countries. The repertoire of the concerts includes numbers from the time of the Beatles and from his solo career, plus songs by the musicians accompanying him.

Beatles Record Sales

  • During the week of April 4, 1964 The Beatles occupied the first five slots of the Billboard Hot 100, #1 - "Can't Buy Me Love," #2 - "Twist and Shout," #3 - "She Loves You," #4 - "I Want to Hold Your Hand" and #5 - "Please Please Me," the only group in rock and roll history to achieve this feat. That same week they also had another nine charting records in the Hot 100, bringing the total to fourteen for the week, another feat unlikely to ever be matched in the future.
     
  • In 1964, the Beatles had the never-matched total of 15 American million-selling records (9 singles and 6 LPs), representing US sales of over 25 million in 1964 alone.
