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: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.

Scoop Review Of Books: We’re All Lab Rats

A couple of years ago, there were reports that Silicon Valley executives were sending their children to tech-free schools. It was a story that dripped of irony: geeks in the heart of techno-utopia rejecting their ideology when it came to their own kids. But the story didn’t catch on, and an awkward question lingered. Why were the engineers of the future desperate to part their gadgets from their children? More>>
