Ringo Starr once joked that he would call his Las Vegas show “The Golden Drums.” The fake title was inspired by Elton John’s “Red Piano” shows on the Strip.
That was about six years ago. Turning the clock back, Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band return to the Strip to play The Venetian Theater on May 24, 26 and 27. All concerts begin at 8 pm Tickets start at $69 (tax not included) and go on sale at 10 am on January 19 at Ticketmaster.com, VenetianLasVegas.com, at any box office in The Venetian complex or by calling 702.414.9000 or 866.641.7469.

“It’s a new year and here are some new tour dates,” rock legend Starr, 82, said in a statement. “I love playing with the All Starr and can’t wait to hit the road with this band again. I send Peace and Love to all of you and we look forward to seeing you out there.”
The former Beatle will give 20 concerts on his next tour, which begins May 19 at the Pechanga Resort Casino in Temecula, California, and ends at the San Jose Civic Center on June 17.
Starr most recently performed at the Planet Hollywood Theater in Las Vegas for eight concerts in October 2017. Prior to that, the band headlined the Smith Center’s Reynolds Hall in November 2016.
The All-Starrs made their Las Vegas debut shortly after forming, at the Aladdin Theater for the Performing Arts (now Planet Hollywood’s Zappos Theater), on August 30, 1989. In 1992 they performed at the now-closed Circus Maximus at Caesars Palace. , and on their Las Vegas tours they headlined The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel, Rio Pavilion, Mandalay Bay Beach and Pearl at the Palms.
Starr’s shows are peppered with Beatles classics and hits from his solo career. Their covers of “Matchbox”, “Boys” and “Act Naturally” have been performed, along with “I Wanna Be Your Man”, “Photograph”, “With A Little Help From My Friends” and “Yellow Submarine”. Introducing this latest song, Starr says, “If you don’t know this song, you’re at the wrong concert.”
In 2016, Starr said that she simply enjoys getting behind the set and introducing herself to her peers.
“I go out and do my songs, then I go play the drums and let someone else sing,” said the rock legend. “After all this time, I still love playing the drums.”
This is a developing report.
