Rock and Roll Royalty, Ringo Starr, and His All Star Band to Perform at Walmart AMP

NORTHWEST ARKANSAS, March 30, 2018 – Sir Richard Starkey, better known as Ringo Starr from The Beatles, and His All Starr Band will perform at the Walmart AMP on Sunday, Sept. 2 as part of the 2018 Cox Concert Series. Gates open at 6:30 pm and music starts at 7:30 pm. Tickets go on sale Friday, April 6 at 10 am.

Ticket prices range from $55.50 to $105 plus applicable fees. Tickets can be purchased in person at the Walton Arts Center Box Office in Fayetteville, by calling 479.443.5600 or by visiting www.amptickets.com.

Every Ringo Starr and His All Starr Band show features classic hits with each band member bringing to the set their most popular songs.

The 2018 All Starr Band includes Colin Hay from Men at Work (“Who Can It Be Now” and “Land Down Under”), Steve Lakather from Toto (“Africa,” “Hold the Line” and “Roseanna”), Gregg Rolie from Santana, Journey and Abraxas Pool (“Black Magic Woman” and “Evil Ways”), and new member Graham Gouldman of 10cc (“I’m Not In Love” and “Things We Do For Love”). On percussion and sax is Warren Ham, and Greg Bissonette is on drums.

“There is no greater joy for me than playing great music with great musicians,” Starr said. “Every night we get to play for all those loving people and it makes the hassle of touring worth it. It is a peace and love fest, and I can’t wait to see you all out there this summer and fall.”

Starr’s music has always emanated from his warmth, humor and exceptional skill, manifesting in songs we know and love including “With A Little Help From My Friends,” “Don’t Pass Me By,” “Octopus’ Garden,” “Photograph,” “It Don’t Come Easy,” “Back Off Boogaloo,” “You’re Sixteen (You’re Beautiful and You’re Mine),” “Don’t Go Where the Road Don’t Go,” “The No Song” and “Never Without You.”

Rolling Stone rock critic David Wild wrote about Starr, “Ultimately what’s most impressive about Ringo Starr isn’t what he’s been, but rather who he is. The man’s got a great heart and soul, he has wit and wisdom.”

Since beginning his career with The Beatles in the 1960s, Ringo has been one of the world’s brightest musical luminaries. He has enjoyed a successful, dynamic solo career as a singer, songwriter, drummer, collaborator and producer – releasing 18 solo studio albums to date. He continues to play an important recording, touring and unofficial mentoring role in modern music.

The Walmart AMP (Arkansas Music Pavilion), a Walton Arts Center venue since February 2011, is Arkansas’ premier outdoor concert venue. The AMP has presented headlining concerts for the past 12 years, including rock, country and pop. In its permanent home in Pinnacle Hills at 5079 W. Northgate Rd., Rogers, Ark., the Walmart AMP has the largest outdoor stage house in Arkansas.
