Skip to comments.BDS Fail: Ringo Goes Where Lorde Fears to Tread, Confirms Two Shows in Israel
Posted on 01/03/2018 8:08:53 AM PST by DFG
Ringo Starr will perform two shows in Israel later this year in defiance of the anti-Israel BDS movement that calls for the complete isolation of the Jewish State. The former Beatle made the announcement on his personal website. It comes just a week after New Zealand singer Lorde cancelled her planned Tel Aviv concert after a vocal campaign by BDS activists.
Ringo has chosen a band that includes fellow rock legends Steve Lukather of Toto, Greg Rollie of Journey and Graham Gouldman of 10cc as the All-Starrs. The two shows are booked for Tel Avivs Menorah Mivtahim Arena on June 23 and 24.
The visit comes 52 years after The Beatles were originally scheduled to perform in Israel in 1966 but were turned away by the government of the day who deemed them to be a bad influence on Israeli youth.

Love Ringo. He is vehemently pro-Brexit as well.

The Oldest of the Beatles, and will probably outlive them all.
God Bless Him for standing with Israel.

Yay to Ringo!

Liberal heads azzploding.

Sir Richard Starkey,(born 7 July 1940), known professionally as Ringo Starr....................

You dont see one like him very often. When you do, you smile and ask others if they saw him too.
I also went twice ... always ends the show with Sgt Peppers/'Get by with a little help with my friends' medley ...
And still touring!................
Always liked Ringo. He’s highly admired by his drumming peers, played a big role in improving the Beatles, has had a successful solo career, and married a beauty.
That is, SIR RINGO, if you please
Ringo marches to the beat of his own drum. ;)
And Roger Waters can go beat his head on The Wall.
