Ringo is back

Liverpool Empire date on Paul McCartney’s birthday.

Published on March 7th 2011.

Ringo is back

RINGO Starr is coming back to Liverpool.

The 71-year-old, who, it seems, hasn’t been able to put a foot right in recent years, will be banging the drum at the Liverpool Empire in June.

Tickets will be going for £60 a snare.

Ringo upset everyone in Liverpool when he told chat show host Jonathan Ross that he didn’t miss anything about the city - after having not lived here for most of his life.

This was shortly after he opened the city’s European Capital of Culture year, just over the road from the Empire, with a show on the roof of St George’s Hall.

His impertinence led to his head being chopped off a topiary model of the Beatles which sat outside John Lennon Airport. It was never found.

Later in the year, he got backs up elsewhere when he announced he would no longer be appeasing autograph hunters with their incessant requests for a quick signature. Although to be fair, these were mostly eBay opportunists.

But time to let bygones be bygones, eh?

Ringo will be appearing with his All Starr Band on a short UK tour taking in Liverpool, Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow, Bournemouth and an appearance at Hampton Court Palace Festival. Quite who the “Starrs” are we don’t know yet.

Ringo continues to play an important role in modern music with his solo recording and touring. It says here.

Promoters Live Nation add: “These shows are bound to be one of the highlights of the 2011 live calendar and tickets are bound to fly out the door, so don’t miss your chance to see one of music’s all time greats this summer.”

Will you be going? Has anything to be sorry about?

Ringo plays the Liverpool Empire on June 18, Paul McCartney’s 69th birthday.

Tickets go on sale 9am on Friday 4th March 2011 priced at £60.00 / £55.00 (subject to booking fee) and are available from www.livenation.co.uk

£60 quid a ticket? Unbelievable.

I won't be paying £6 to see Ringo. And I hope they pull his house down too

Love Peace - love a piece of the ticket sales.
No wonder McCartney pushes his vegetarianism, it is so those who pay to see him do not realise they can't afford to buy meat for a few weeks.

I suppose he's a bit short. He can't earn money as Yassir Arafat's stunt double any more.

For a small fee, I can reveal where Rongo's decapitated privet head is still being held captive.

Ringo has nothing to apologise for.

Wouldn't open my curtains to see him, never mind my purse! Chinless wonder...

Who untied Ringo and helped him down from The Echo Arena roof? I'm absolutely furious. I put him up there for a reason!

Dig, you are back. How is Renault land? I need a new battery for my key immobiliser. Do I really have to go to the dealership or will Maplin's do?

Those batteries come in a packet of two @ £2.30 in Asda.

If it's a 3-volt CR2025, slightly smaller than a 20p piece, then 'oui'.

Probably cheaper still in real cheapo shops like B&M Savers
