Ringo Starr & His All Starr Band / The Avett Brothers at The Wang Theater
June 2, 2022 @ 6:30 PM - 11:00 PM
Ringo Starr & His All Starr Band and The Avett Brothers will take the Boch Center Wang Theatre stage June 2, 2022!
Don’t miss Ringo Starr, with multi-Grammy Award nominated Americana legends The Avett Brothers and his current All Starr Band, featuring guitarist Steve Lukather (Toto), Colin Hay (Men At Work), Edgar Winter, guitarist/bassist Hamish Stuart (Average White Band), fellow drummer Gregg Bissonette (David Lee Roth Band, ELO) and sax player/percussionist Warren Ham.
This announcement comes on the heels of the release of Ringo’s 20th studio record, What’s My Name. The title track is a rousing anthem written by a returning All Starr Band member, Colin Hay, that turns a familiar chant from Ringo’s live shows into a rousing rocker sure to be a future crowd-pleaser.
The Avett Brothers made mainstream waves with their 2009 major label debut, I and Love and You, landing at No. 16 on the Billboard Top 200 and garnering critical acclaim. 2012 saw The Carpenter hit No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200 and was followed by Magpie and the Dandelion (2013) which debuted at No. 5 on Billboard’s Top 200 and saw the band appear twice on Jimmy Kimmel Live! True Sadness (2016) achieved The Avett Brothers’ highest career debut to date hitting No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Albums Chart, No. 1 Top Rock Albums Chart, No. 1 Digital Albums Chart, No. 3 on Billboard Top 200, and scoring two GRAMMY® nominations. This year the band released their tenth studio album Closer Than Together featuring new single “High Steppin” which reached #1 on the Americana Radio Chart. Coming soon: Swept Away – a new musical inspired by and featuring the music of The Avett Brothers – will have its world premiere at Berkeley Repertory Theatre in June 2020.
