Ringo Starr has revealed plans to embark on another tour of North America this summer with his All-Starr band. The legendary Beatle and company will swing through New England for a pair of concerts, including one in Rhode Island. He’ll stop in Rhode Island for a performance at the Providence Performing Arts Center on Sunday, June 15. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $65 to $125, will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through the venue’s box office and website.

Starr began touring with the All-Starr Band in 1989. This time around, the lineup will largely resemble his touring mates from 2012. Starr will be joined by Steve Lukather (Toto), Greg Rolie (Santana & Journey), Todd Rundgren, Richard Paige (Mr. Mister) and Greg Bissonette.

“I love playing with this band,” Starr said in a statement, “and I can’t wait to get back out and play with them again.”

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’s last studio release was Ringo 2012. The album, Starr’s 17th solo effort and follow-up to 2010’s Y Not, was released in January of 2012.

Prior to the show in Rhode Island, Starr will perform at the Oakdale Theatre in Wallingford, Connecticut on June 14.

Most recently, Starr sang “Photograph” and played drums with Paul McCartney on his new song “Queenie Eye” at the Grammy Awards. To mark the 50th anniversary of their appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show, the two surviving Beatles also filmed a television special on Monday. “The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute To The Beatles” featured a plethora of notable guests including Stevie Wonder, Dave Grohl, Alicia Keys, Katy Perry, Keith Urban, John Mayer, Brad Paisley, Pharrell Williams and a reunited Eurythmics. CBS will air the performance on February 9.
