“I can’t wait to get back on the road and play,” Ringo said. “It’s the longest I’ve been off the road in years – until 2020 I toured every year with the All Starrs – and I’ve really missed it. Making music in the studio has been great, and it sure saved me during the pandemic but nothing beats playing live with great musicians in front of an audience I love my fans and they love me and it’s gonna be wonderful to be at peace and to love and play for them again.
