Ringo Starr and All-Starr Band kick-off tour at Casino Rama Friday

RAMA — It’ll be another sellout crowd tonight at Casino Rama, as Ringo Starr and his All-Starr band played to a packed house.

At a press screening for the 40-date summer and fall tour kickoff Thursday, Starr said “this is what I do — I’m not an electrician — I’m a musician and I love playing.”

And the former Beatles drummer said he still loves playing — “with these guys.”

His All-Starr band is the same group he’s had the past two years — after starting the touring band over a decade ago.

He’s back at Casino Rama Friday night for the tour’s kickoff concert, where he’s rehearsed the band each year for a decade.

On stage with him are Steve Lukather, Richard Page, Gregg Rolie, Todd Rundgren, Greg Bissonette and the newest member this year reed and percussionist Warren Hamm.

An All-Starr lineup includes a who's who of rock's royalty.

And among those in the house will be the Currie Brothers, Gravenhurst’s musical two-some with a love for all things music, history and especially the Fab Four.

“It’s a chance to see a Beatle,” boasts Andrew Currie, who will take in the show with brother Robert.

It’s especially important for Andrew, who’s a drummer — as well as multi-instrumentalist.

A few tickets may still be available if you call Casino Rama or go to the boxoffice.
