Yesterday in the mail, the tickets for the Ringo Starr concert arrived.
On my birthday, Ringo and his All-Starr Band — including Todd Rundgren, Gregg Rolie (of Santana fame), Steve Lukather (Toto), Richard Page (Mr. Mister), saxophonist Mark Rivera, and drummer Gregg Bissonette — will be playing in Baltimore.
And I’m going to take my mom.
Yes, the tickets were pricey. But it’s my mom, and she’ll enjoy it.
I don’t expect brilliance from a Ringo concert. I expect that we’ll hear a couple of Ringo’s old standbys, and then his bandmates will come out and take center stage for a spell (I kinda hope Richard Page will do his two Mr. Mister hits, “Broken Wings” and “Kyrie”), and then it’s done. It’ll be my birthday, and it’ll be fun.
Can’t ask for more than that.
