RING0 RETURNS TO NZ FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE THE BEATLES LEGENDARY TOUR OF NZ IN 1964!!!

October 18, 2012 – Today Ringo Starr announced that he and his All Starr Bandwill perform one show in Auckland and one show in Christchurch. The band is the same line upwhich just completed a North American summer tour and features Steve Lukather (Toto), Richard Page (Mr. Mister), Todd Rundgren, Mark Rivera,Gregg Rolie (Santana & Journey) and Gregg Bissonette.

"The tour this summer in the US was just GREAT - I love playing with this band and Ican’t wait to get back out and play with them again,” Ringo said. “I am looking forward to revisiting New Zealand and bringing the All Starrs. Peace & Love!”

The tour is being produced by Dave Hart and as always fans can expect to hear a jukebox worth of hits during this two-hour show, including Ringo classic’s such as “It Don’t Come Easy”, “Photograph”, “Little Help From My Friends”, “Yellow Submarine” and “Wings”, from Starr’s recently released 17th solo record, Ringo 2012 Out Now. The All Starr’s hits include “Rosanna,” “Broken Wings,” “Hello It’s Me,” “Black Magic Woman.”

The February 2013 concerts will bring the legendary Beatle back to New Zealand for thefirst time since The Beatles 1964 tour down under.

Craig Wilson, CEO of NZ concert promotions company Bolton Promotions, said:“Bringing one of the only two surviving Beatles here for a couple of fantastic shows is a thrill and indeed, an honour”, Craig says. “And working alongside one of NZ’s most experienced promoters, Gray Bartlett, makes it a perfect combination”

Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band NZ tour is strictly limited to one concert only in Auckland and one only in Christchurch. The group will play the entire concert from start to finish!

“The Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band concerts are a hit parade as the All Starrs perform their biggest songs and back up Starr on both his beloved Beatles tunes as well as his solo hits.”

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
