Beatles Legend Ringo Starr To Celebrate Birthday With ‘Peace And Love’ Campaign


This weekend, Ringo Starr is to celebrate his birthday with his annual ‘Peace & Love’ campaign.

The campaign was originally launched by the Beatles star in 2008, where he organised a gathering of friends at Chicago’s Hard Rock Café to join him for Peace and Love.

However, the in-person event was curtailed after the pandemic took a grip on the world, which has seen Starr organise this celebration online.

On Sunday (July 7), Ringo Starr and his wife Barbara Starkey will be joined by family and friends including Joe and Marjorie Walsh, Ed Begley Jr, Fred Armisen, Ben Dickey, Greg Leisz, Steve Dudas, Ben Harper, Asa & Roy Orbison Jr, Matt Sorum, Stephen Stills, Nick Valensi, Diane Warren, Gregg Bissonette, Don Was, Willie Watson, Gabe Witcher and more.

The campaign will continue to see Starr and friends spread messages of love to and from the universe.

“here we go again” – Ringo Starr Launches Campaign

Speaking ahead of this weekend’s celebrations, Ringo Starr also had this to say.

“OK Peace & Love here we go again!”, he said in a video message.

Starr also added: “Thanks for joining me on my birthday. I am so grateful to you all for helping me promote Peace & Love. I want to give special thanks to all the Peace & Love Ambassadors – we are in 34 countries! thanks for doing it  – and I gotta thank all the fans, peace & love – just join me in your mind, or on the bus or wherever you are on the 7th of the 7th just go Peace & Love at Noon your local time”. 

This programme ‘The Beatles Channel’ will also be aired on SiriusXM.

The campaign will also be supported by Starbucks. They will play a special playlist in 15,000 US and Canadian locations.

Back in May, Ringo Starr had also claimed that The Beatles would have made less albums if it had not been for Paul McCartney, who he also described as a “workaholic”.
