Former Beatle Ringo Starr has just added U.S. tour dates to his 2018 All Starr Band’s itinerary. After touring Europe this June and July, the band will perform throughout North America in September.

The 2018 All Starr Band includes Men at Work’s Colin Hay, Toto’s Steve Lukather, Santana’s Gregg Rolie and 10cc’s Graham Gouldman.  Percussionist and saxophonist Warren Ham and drummer Gregg Bissonette complete the band.

Each band member will play his most popular songs, and the set will likely include several Beatles’ tracks as well.

The tour comes to Hard Rock Live on Sept. 21.

Starr has often called the All Starrs “the best 1-800-band in the land.”

“There is no greater joy for me than playing great music with great musicians," he says in a press release announcing the dates. "Every night we get to play for all those loving people and it makes the hassle of touring worth it. It is a peace and love fest, and I can’t wait to see you all out there this summer and fall.”
