Listen to Ringo Starr on iHeartRadio

Ringo Starr is back on the road.  The former Beatle is launching his latest All Starr Band trek in Canada, with a show in Rama, Ontario on Friday. 

Ringo tells Billboard.com he's thrilled to once again be touring with Todd Rundgren, Santana's Gregg Rolie, Toto's Steve Lukather, and Mr. Mister's Richard Page.  He says he loves this band, and is "trying to do anything to keep it together." 

The drummer explains that "everyone is cool" and "a prime musician," and they all "just get on really, really well."  This year marks the 25th anniversary of Ringo's All-Starr Band concept, which he describes as "like a jukebox."  Everyone in the lineup gets the spotlight, and they team up to play each other's hits. 

Ringo's All Starr Band will play 30 shows this summer, bringing the tour to an end in Los Angeles on July 19th.  The group will reconvene later in the year for their just-announced 14-date fall run, beginning in Tulsa, Oklahoma on October 2nd.
