Yes, I saw Ringo Starr in concert!! We've had tickets since March to see Ringo and his All Starr Band in Toronto on October 20 - this concert definitely ranked in the top five of concerts that we've seen. The concert was at Massey Hall, a smaller venue which was a perfect spot for a concert like this - no screens needed there and the sound was outstanding!
Can you believe Ringo is 75 years old? How can that be? He doesn't look it, he doesn't act it, his concert was 25 songs with no intermission - the songs were great, he interacted with the audience - hey, I guess he's had a lot of experience at it by now!
Ringo has been touring with an All Starr band since 1989, this particular group has been together since 2012 - it's unique because many of these guys had hits in their own right - Steve Lukather from Toto - remember Rosanna and Africa - Richard Page from Mr. Mister - Broken Wings, Kyrie - Gregg Rolie from Santana & Journey - Black Magic Woman - Todd Rundgren who performed as a solo artist and with the group Utopia - Love is the Answer, Bang the Drum All Day - these songs were all performed and of course, Ringo's great songs - It Don't Come Easy, You're Sixteen, Photograph and a few Beatles songs - Yellow Submarine, I don't think there was a person there that wasn't singing along with that one, With a Little Help From My Friends and Give Peace a Chance - the encore song! That's just a few of the songs - it was just the best night!!
Like I said, it was definitely one of the best concerts - I was thinking back to the past year, we've been so lucky to see some great ones - Fleetwood Mac, John Fogerty of Creedence Clearwater Revival, Lynyrd Skynrd - have you seen any memorable ones lately?
