Ringo Starr will return to the road this summer for an outing featuring the thirteenth edition of his All-Starr Band. The legendary drummer of The Beatles will perform at the Bank of America Pavilion in Boston on Tuesday, June 19. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $30 to $95, will go on sale Monday at 10.m. through Live Nation.

New to the All-Starrs are Steve Lukather (Toto) and Gregg Rolie (Santana & Journey) who will join All-Starr alumni Richard Page (Mr. Mister), Todd Rundgren, Mark Rivera, and Gregg Bissonette.

Starr will be touring in support of his brand new release, Ringo 2012. The album, Starr’s 17th solo effort and follow-up to 2010’s Y Not, was released at the end of last month. It features many special guests including Joe Walsh (of the Eagles), Benmont Tench (of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers) and Kenny Wayne Shepherd.

Along with a new material, fans can expect to hear plenty of hits from Starr’s solo-career and of course, The Beatles. Members of the All-Starr band will also offer renditions of their most well-know hits.

Starr began touring with the All-Starr Band in 1989. Since then, countless musicians have been featured in the dozen tours including Levon Helm (The Band), John Entwistle (The Who), Jack Bruce (Cream), Peter Frampton, Colin Hay and Richard Marx.

Prior to the show in Boston, Starr and His All-Starr Band will perform at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut on Sunday, June 17. Tickets for the show are now on sale through Ticketmaster for $45.
