Ringo Starr will join fans at the Capitol Records Tower on Sunday, July 7, at noon for his annual “Peace & Love Birthday” celebration.
The celebration brings people together to create “peace and love” throughout the world. Starr started the events in 2008 at the Hard Rock Café Chicago and last year celebrated the 10th anniversary at the Hard Rock Café Nice. Similar events are planned in 22 countries.
“I’ve said it before, but I really can’t think of a better way to celebrate my birthday, or a better gift I could ask for, than peace and love. It’s so great how every year it keeps growing, with the wave of peace and love starting in the morning on July 7 in Australia and ending in Hawaii, with celebrations in all the time zones in between,” Starr said. “I am so happy to be back at Capitol Records, and for our great sponsors who are carrying the message of peace and love around the world, like the David Lynch Foundation, Life is Good, SiriusXM, Modern Drummer and Starbucks. I also want to thank each and every one of you for continuing to help spread peace and love.”
The event in Hollywood will include tribute performances by Ben Kyle from Romantica with Sara Watkins, and the rock ‘n’ roll band The Jacks. A special premiere of an original song about peace and love will also be held. The song was composed for the occasion by students of the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus and the Fernando Pullum Community Arts Center in South Los Angeles. The song will later premiere online as a video featuring music students, guest artists and friends.
Musial performances begin at 11 a.m. in front of Capitol Records, 1750 N. Vine St. For information, visit facebook.com/ringostarrmusic.
