Ringo Starr's Peace And Love Birthday Celebrations To Take Place At L.A.'s Capitol Records
Rolling Stone reports that every July 7th (Starr's birthday), fans from more than 20 countries around the world have joined in on the tradition to "create a wave of Peace & Love across the planet." This year, Starr is making the moment even more special by hosting an event at Los Angeles' Capitol Records with performances by Ben Kyle, the Jacks and Sara Watkins.
"I’ve said it before but I really can’t think of a better way to celebrate my birthday, or a better gift I could ask for, than peace and love,” Starr said in a statement to the magazine. “It’s so great how every year it keeps growing, with the wave of peace and love starting in the morning on July 7 in Australia and ending in Hawaii, with celebrations in all the time zones in between. I am so happy to be back at Capitol Records, and for our great sponsors who are carrying the message of peace and love around the world, like the David Lynch Foundation, Life is Good, SiriusXM, Modern Drummer and Starbucks. I also want to thank each and everyone of you for continuing to help spread peace and love, Ringo."
