Filmed at the Foellinger Theatre in Fort Wayne, IN, on June 21, 2016, the concert features the band at the top of their game as they deliver hit after hit. Highlights of Ringo Starr and His 2016 All Starr Band include “You’re Sixteen” and “Photograph;” “Yellow Submarine” and “With A Little Help From My Friends,” and the as well as Todd Rundgren’s “Bang The Drum All Day” and “I Saw The Light;” Toto signatures “Africa” and “Rosanna;” Mr. Mister’s “Kyrie” and “Broken Wings;” and the Santana staples “Evil Ways” and “Black Magic Woman;” among many others.
This lineup is the 12th version and longest running incarnation of the group — three years — and concluded the tour in November 2016. As every set of dates conclude Ringo says, “I just love playing with this band. I joke that at the end of every tour I think it’s the last one and so I fire them. And then we keep finding places we can play and keep it going so I rehire them.”
The Sarasota Tribune-Herald praises the group, stating, “This latest incarnation of Starr’s travelling show has been together now going on three years and watching them interact as an actual band, rather than a supergroup taking turns out front, is almost as fun, almost, as watching and screaming ‘I love you’ at the front man who will forever be part of the biggest rock ‘n’ roll band of all time.”
