Peace & Love: Ringo Starr's 80th Birthday Celebration & Reader Offer
03 Jul 2020
This Tuesday 7th July, Sir Richard Starkey turns 80. For the last 12 years, Ringo has held a celebration event on his birthday encouraging people worldwide to come together at 12 noon to say 'peace and love', and he urges everyone to do the same this year.
'At 12 noon, July 7th 2020, you go, "Peace and love". Peace and love, that's all I ask, wherever you are - on a bus, down the mine, in a spaceship...' - Ringo Starr
This year, in addition, Ringo Starr has announced a livestream benefit concert. The star-studded event will consist of exclusive new at-home performances and previously unseen concert footage from former Beatles-bandmate Paul McCartney, Sheryl Crow, Joe Walsh, Ben Harper, Gary Clark Jr and more. Donations during the event will be split between the Black Lives Matter Global Network, MusiCares, The David Lynch Foundation, and WaterAid. 'Ringo's Big Birthday Show' will air on the day of his birthday, July 7, from 5pm PST, on his YouTube channel.
