Ringo Starr and His All-Starr Band opened their tour in Paris. During the finale – the Beatles’ “With a Little Help From My Friends” – none other than Joan Baez joined the fun to sing along.
Baez is currently playing the same venue – L’Olympia – for a series of concerts as part of her Fare Thee Well tour.
The 2018 All Starr Band includes Colin Hay of Men at Work, Steve Lukather of Toto, Gregg Rolie of Santana and Journey and new member Graham Gouldman of 10cc. On percussion and sax is Warren Ham and on drums Gregg Bissonette.
After the main set, which features Beatles songs, many of Starr’s solo hits, and classic rock favorites from members of the All-Starr Band, the program closed, as usual, with the Beatles’ “With a Little Help From My Friends.” After the song had begun, Baez arrived on stage where she remained for a little over a minute.
