Ringo Starr – Now he is only 72 and all he wants to do is Boogaloo…
Here is Ringo Starr and His 2012 All Starr Band from June 16, 2012 in Mohegan Sun-Uncasville, CT.
All-Star veteran, Todd Rundgren, was true to his normal silly form and performed his 3 best songs, “Hello It’s Me”, “Bang the Drum All Day”, and “I Saw the Light.” Greg Rolie, the lead singer from Santana, sang such great hits as “Evil Ways” and “Black Magic Woman.” Another All-Star veteran, Richard Page from Mr. Mister, sang “Kyrie” and “Broken Wings” which sounded surprisingly great. What a voice. The performance of these songs sounded just like the recording! And Steve Lukather, lead singer and lead guitarist from Toto was just awesome. Hearing his hits such as “Rosanna”, “Africa”, and “Hold the Line” live was incredible. Also, saxophonist and all around musician Mark Rivera did well yet again as an All-Star Member.
The only low point (if you can call it that) or run to the washroom break moment was Page’s new song “You Are Mine” which he sang and personally thanked Ringo for allowing him to sing during this tour. All of the other songs were well known hits that the crowd just loved. After Ringo’s All British All-Star Band lineup which included Frampton, Bruce, Brooker, etc from the 1997 tour, this was probably the second best show from all of the ASB lineups yet. Hopefully many of you have attended or will attend a concert from this tour. I am really glad that I went. I did however, become a little verklempt at the end of the show knowing that this may be the last time that I get to see Ringo perform live.
