Ringo at the Greek comes alive
U.S.A. based net shop Amazon has announced a commercial release of three products, all with the concert from September 1, 2019 in The Greek Theater, Los Angeles from Ringo. November 25, 2022 is the release date of “Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band: Live at the Greek Theater 2019” on 2CD and DVD as well as a combo 2CD/Blu-ray. As we have informed about previously, the concert will also be a very limited edition 2LP at Record Store Day’s Black Friday event. Over in the U.K. the British edition of Amazon lists the following: a 2CD, a DVD and a Blu-ray, and not as the stateside 3disc combo 2CD/Blu-ray.
Older fans might remember an earlier Greek Theater concert recording and video, released as “Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band Live at the Greek Theatre 2008” on CD and DVD, and the observant reader may already have caught the spelling change in the word “theater” – British spelling in the earlier release, American in the new one.
The 2019 concert film has already been out in U.S.A. as part of “The Coda Collection”, which is part of the Amazon Prime streaming services. From August 2022, this feature is also available for U.K. Amazon Prime subscribers.
Ringo & his All-Starr Band was at the time of this concert Greg Rolie (Santana), Steve Lukather (Toto), Hamish Stuart (Average White Band), Colin Hay (Men at Work) and of course Ringo himself. Joe Walsh, Nils Lofgren and Edgar Winter were among the special guests on stage.

Releasing a solo product so close to the much awaited upcoming “Revolver” Beatles release gives us hope that John og Yoko’s “Some Time in New York City”, George & co’s “Concert for Bangladesh” as well as the remaining Wings albums “London Town” and “Back To The Egg” may still be on the cards for this year.
Finally a full Ringo & TASB release on cd. A blu-ray added as a part of the combo pack (a first for his concerts). Looking forwarding to this release as I saw this particular lineup at the start of this leg (30th Anniversary celebration) in Windsor on August 1st 2019.
According to SetList.fm the date of the Concert was the first of September 2019
You are absolutely correct, Sir! We were mislead by another article about the concert. Blog post updated.
I was expecting a post about The Beatles and the Queen: the royal variety performance, the premieres of a Hard Days night and help, the MBE, John returning his MBE + Cold Turkey, Paul as Sir 1997, Paul and the Jubilee, Paul Companion of Honour and Ringo as Sir …
