Impressive performance with a Little Help From His Fans.

Last night, Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band delivered an unforgettable performance at ACL Live at The Moody Theater in Austin, Texas, captivating the audience with their incredible talent and infectious energy. The lineup featured Steve Lukather from Toto on guitar, Buck Johnson on keyboards, Colin Hay from Men At Work on guitar, Warren Ham on sax, Hamish Stuart from Average White Band on guitar, and Gregg Bissonette on drums. Together, they created a night to remember, blending classic hits with seamless musicianship.

The opportunity to see one of the ex-Beatles performing live is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that any music lover would treasure. For us to be able to cover this show was an incredible honor and privilege. It allowed us to witness firsthand the enduring legacy of a music icon, capture the electric atmosphere of the concert, and share the magic of the evening with our readers.

This event not only highlighted the timeless appeal of Ringo Starr (83 years old now) but also underscored the profound impact The Beatles have had on music history.

No show without The Beatles notes

Of course, no Ringo Starr show would be complete without a nod to his Beatles roots. The audience erupted with joy during “Yellow Submarine,” with Ringo’s iconic vocals transporting everyone back to the golden era of rock ‘n’ roll. The nostalgic journey continued with a delightful performance of “Octopus’s Garden,” leaving fans both young and old swaying and singing together.

The show was followed by more great songs from the other bands such as “Overkill” and “Who Can It Be Now” by Men At Work, “Cut the Cake” from Average White Band and “Hold The Line” from Toto.

It was such a delightful evening.
