Former Beatle Ringo Starr is a living legend whose contribution to the roots of rock and roll is immeasurable, not only as a Beatle, but also through his prolific and successful solo career.

In gathering a new group of iconic rockers to play as the All Starr band, each tour, every configuration offers a new and memorable moment where we get to experience songs we all know and love.

Ringo At The Ryman, filmed on July 7, 2012, in Nashville, USA, celebrates Ringo’s birthday with an extra special lineup touching on some unforgettable hits spanning four decades – from Steve Lukather (Toto), Richard Page (Mr. Mister), Mark Rivera (Billy Joel), Gregg Rolie (Journey, Santana), Todd Rundgren and Gregg Bissonette. The set list is undeniably familiar: “It Don’t Come Easy,” “Act Naturally,” “Photograph,” “I Wanna Be Your Man,” “Yellow Submarine,” and his bandmates’ contributions “Roseanna,” “Black Magic Woman,” “Kyrie Eleison,” “Bang the Drum All Day,” and so many more.

During the show at the legendary Ryman, the All Starrs weren’t the only stars out that night. Joe Walsh made a special guest appearance to play “Rocky Mountain Way” and was then joined for the encore, “With A Little Help From My Friends,” by his daughter Lucy and some of Nashville’s finest players such as Brendan Benson, Kix Brooks, Gary Burr, Vince Gill, Brad Paisley and former All Starr alums Felix Cavaliere of The Young Rascals and Richard Marx.
