Boston, MA – Ringo Starr & His All Starr Band performed at the Wang Theatre-Boch Center in Boston last month before a capacity crowd of over 3,000 fans. Ringo was supported by this year’s lineup of musicians with the likes of Steve Lukather (Toto), Colin Hay (Men at Work), Gregg Rollie (Santana and Journey), Graham Gouldman (10cc), Warren Ham (Kansas), and Gregg Bissonette. The evening was full of fantastic music, played by some of history’s top stars in rock and roll.
As always, the former Beatle delivered a tight set with his supporting cast. In addition to playing some of Ringo’s solo hits such as “It Don’t Come Easy,” “You’re Sixteen,” and “Photograph,” they also performed the hits “Don’t Pass Me By” (Beatles), “Yellow Submarine” (Beatles), “ With a Little Help From My Friends” (Beatles), “Hold the Line” (Toto), “Africa” (Toto), Rosanna” (Toto), “Who Can It Be Now” (Men at Work), “Overkill” (Men at Work), “Evil Ways” (Santana), “Black Magic Woman” (Santana), “The Things We Do for Love” (10cc), and “I’m Not in Love” (10cc).
The Wang is a majestic theater built in 1925, experienced a dramatic renovation in 1983 with the generous support of An and Lorraine Wang. It is a gem that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and boasts one of the largest stages in the country. Both Ringo and The Wang provided a must-see experience for all in attendance.
