Ringo Starr Is Working on New Music, Including a Country EP

Monday, May 15, 2023

Ringo Starr doesn’t plan on slowing down anytime soon. In fact, when asked recently if he has any plans for retirement, the former Beatle said: “No. I tell everybody: ‘As long as I can lift a drumstick, we will play.’ And I love to play. I still love to play.” That means new music is on the horizon—three EPs this year alone, including a country project.

Starr and the All-Starr Band’s 2023 fall tour was recently announced following the previous announcement of the band’s 2023 spring tour, which begins May 19 at Pechanga Resort in Temecula, CA. The first show immediately sold out after going on sale.

Last year, the band’s 2022 summer tour was suspended due to band members Winter and Lukather contracting COVID. The shows were pushed back into the fall, when Starr made up the losses six days in a row, one show per day. But after that, the famous drummer tested positive for COVID himself, twice. So additional tour stops needed canceling.

The musician is eager to get back to it.
