For 30 years The Beatles‘ drummer has toured with more than a dozen variations of his solo band.

They debuted in 1989 with an A-list ensemble of musicians, including The Eagles’ Joe Walsh and Nils Lofgren from the E Street Band.

The rock stars set out to play a variety of covers, Beatles’ songs and some of Starr’s own solo work.
