SARATOGA SPRINGS — Ringo Starr has unveiled new dates for his latest tour with a revamped All Starr Band, and Saratoga Springs will be one of the stops.

The former Beatle and his band will perform on Friday, Sept. 14, at Saratoga Performing Arts Center. Ticket information will be announced soon, according to Live Nation officials.

The lineup for the band regularly changed between 1989 and 2011 before Starr locked in a group of musicians for a five-year run.

Returning from that band are Steve Lukather (Toto, guitar), Gregg Rollie (Santana, Journey, keyboards), Gregg Bissonette (drums) and Warren Ham (sax, flute, percussion). Not joining for the latest tour are Todd Rundgren, Richard Page and Mark Rivera.

New or returning from earlier versions of the band are Colin Hay (Men at Work, guitar) and Graham Gouldman (10cc, bass).

Ringo said of the tour “There is no greater joy for me than playing great music with great musicians. Every night we get to play for all those loving people and it makes the hassle of touring worth it. It is a peace and love fest and I can’t wait to see you all out there this summer and fall.”

Starr has a series of dates in Europe during June and July before coming to North America. 

After kicking off the tour on June 2 in Atlantic City (Borgata Casino Event Center), they go on the road on Europe beginning June 6 in Paris.

After about 20 concerts abroad, they return to the U.S. for a show on Sept. 1 in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Besides SPAC, regional stops will include New York’s Radio City Music Hall on Sept. 13, Wallingford, Conn., on Sept. 15, and Boston (Wang Theater) on Sept. 17.
