Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band are coming to Las Vegas. And tickets are selling out fast. They’ll be doing three shows in May at the Venetian Theatre at the Venetian Resort Las Vegas.
And when he says “All Star(r) Band”, Ringo isn’t kidding. He’s bringing a whole lot of talent with him to these shows. Let’s break down the line up.
First, we have Steve Lukather on guitar. Besides contributing to albums for other artists like Boz Scaggs and Michael Jackson, Lukather is also the only continuous founding member of the band Toto. So he’ll be bringing some of those hits with him to this show.
Next, on guitar we have Colin Hay, the only continuous founding member of Men At Work. So there’s another catalog of music coming to the Venetian. Hay is also often recognized from television, as he does a lot of screen work in addition to his music.
Edgar Winter is next in the line-up. This multi-instrumentalist is a renaissance man in the group. Playing keys, saxophone, percussion, guitar, and vocals, there’s nothing he can’t do. His diverse talent is a lot of what made his band, The Edgar Winter Group, so popular in the 1970’s. Consider that music catalog number three in this show.
Warren Ham is another multi-instrumentalist in the All-Starr Band line-up. He might be rocking the saxophone, flute, harmonica or keys at this show. He’s best known for his work with Kansas and Toto.
Hamish Stuart will be joining the show on bass guitar at the Venetian, bringing some of his band’s music catalog with him. So listen for songs from Average White Band. We’ll call that concert catalog number four.
And on drums we have Gregg Bissonett. I know what you’re thinking. And yes, Ringo is still a drummer and will be playing drums on this tour. Bissonett will be joining Ringo for their double drum action.
So there you go. You’ve got musicians from Toto, Men At Work, The Edgar Winter Group, and Average White Band. Not to mention the huge Beatles catalog Ringo knows so well. And you will hear songs from all four of these catalogs at the upcoming Venetian tour.
