The Pavilion Intimate Theater at the Toyota Music Factory in Irving, TX is quickly gaining the reputation as being a premiere spot for legendary rockers to stop on their U.S. tours. Imagine a venue, both inside and outdoors, that fits a capacity crowd somewhere between the American Airlines Center and the Gexa Energy Pavilion in Dallas, TX with a solid sound system and plenty of space for folks to mingle together outside of the main concert area. Ex-Beatle drummer Ringo Star and His All-Starr Band will be hitting the stage there on November 3rd.
Although best known for playing the drums for The Beatles from 1962 to 1970, Ringo Starr also sang lead vocals on or helped write several famous songs the Fab Four are known for. "With a Little Help from My Friends," "Yellow Submarine," "Good Night," "Octopus's Garden,"and their cover of "Act Naturally" immediately come to mind. However, most people will remember him as the grinning mop-top sitting behind the drums pounding gleefully away to songs like “She Loves You,” “I Want To Hold Your Hand,” and “Twist and Shout.”
Just like all The Beatles, Starr began a solo career In the 1970s that quickly gained him his own personal following. His albums have sold millions of copies and garnered the musician several top 10 hits. Starr is also a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee not only with The Beatles, but as a solo artist as well.
Ringo is out on the road in support of his 19th studio album, "Give More Love." The record came out September 15th and contains 10 tracks co-written by the likes of Peter Frampton, Van Dyke Parks, Richard Marx, Dave Stewart, and Gary Nicholson. It contains mostly rock songs and a country track. Fellow ex-Beatle Paul McCartney even plays bass and provides backing vocals on a couple of the tracks.
An alternating line-up of familiar musicians from other famous bands make up Ringo Starr and His All-Starr Band when they hit the road on different tours. Recently, the group was made up of Steve Lukather (Toto), Gregg Rolie (Santana and Journey), Todd Rundgren (Nazz, Utopia and The New Cars), Richard Page (Mr. Mister), and Warren Ham (Bloodrock , Kansas, and AD). You never know who might show up when Ringo takes the stage in any given city.
