Ringo Starr Kicked Off 1st Tour Since Beatles Split This Day 1989

When the Beatles disbanded in 1970, it was time for each member to flourish on their own accord with their solo projects. Paul McCartney had Wings, John Lennon and George Harrison went on to release their own vastly popular solo works, and then there was Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band.

It took 19 years, however, until Starr embarked on his first tour since the Beatles broke up. While the All-Starr Band never composed original works, with the exception of "Island in the Sun," the band has released various live albums.

Their first tour ever kicked off in 1989 in Dallas, Texas at Park Central Amphitheater. Ringo's supergroup at the time included Joe Walsh, Billy Preston, Dr. John, Rick Danko, Levon Helm, Nils Lofgren, Clarence Clemons, Jim Keltner. Since that first supergroup, Starr has been through 14 different variations of the band.

The setlist at an All-Starr Band show centers around the works written by the different members who are performing in the supergroup. During the Dallas concert in 1989, Ringo created a 27-song setlist that kicked off with his very own song - "It Don't Come Easy."

They performed several songs by different members in the group including "The Weight" by The Band, "Shine Silently" by Nils Lofgren, "Life in the Fast Lane" by Eagles, and "Right Place, Wrong Time" by Dr. John, just to name a few.

Together they did only three Beatles songs, including Ringo's famous cover of "Act Naturally" and the show finale, "With a Little Help From My Friends."
