Starr has also unveiled the 13th iteration of his band for the tour. After six years with the same line-up, Ringo welcomes Colin Hay back to the group and as well as new member Graham Gouldman of 10cc ('I’m Not In Love', 'Things We Do For Love', 'Dreadlock Holiday', 'Wall Street Shuffle'). Hay and Gouldman join existing All Starrs Steve Lukather, Gregg Rolie, Warren Ham and Gregg Bissonette.
Ringo and company have been picking up rave reviews of late, with People magazine writing: “While almost none of the songs are less than 30 years old, it should be noted (underlined, with asterisks) that Ringo Starr and His All-Starr Band is not a nostalgia act. “Nostalgia” implies something static, irrelevant, and vaguely frivolous. No, Starr and his merry band are much too vibrant for that, and the message of peace and love that they sing is just as relevant today. Besides, legends never go out of style.”
