“Peace and love… I love you all,” Ringo Starr said repeatedly to the audience on Saturday night (June 2) at his second of two Atlantic City warmup shows before he and his All-Starr Band head to Europe for the official start of their 2018 tour. The feeling, of course, was mutual.

The 2018 All Starr Band includes Colin Hay of Men at Work, Steve Lukather of Toto, Gregg Rolie of Santana and Journey and new member Graham Gouldman of 10cc. On percussion and sax is Warren Ham and on drums Gregg Bissonette.

The setlist featured 24 songs at each of the two U.S. warmup dates.

The rest of the clips are from the June 2 performance at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. A Ringo and His All Starr Band show features classic rock hit after hit, with each band member bringing to the set their most popular songs.

2018 is shaping up to be a huge year for Starr. In the same week that he was knighted in a ceremony at London’s Buckingham Palace, he announced U.S. tour dates to follow the 2018 All Starr Band’s European itinerary. The band will be touring Europe this June and July–their first there since 2011–and now have an additional 20 dates throughout the U.S. in September. (See the dates below.)
