Starr Light, Starr Bright. It's official: Ringo Starr is taking his jewelry, his nose and an "All-Starr Band" on his first U.S. concert tour since the Beatles left the road in 1966. On the 31-date tour set to begin July 25 at the Poplar Creek Amphitheatre in Chicago and end Sept. 4 at Los Angeles' Greek Theatre, the ex-Mop Top will preside over a band including Joe Walsh, Rick Danko, Levon Helm, Billy Preston, Nils Lofgren, Clarence Clemons and Dr. John. There is also the possibility of one show being broadcast on pay-per-view television, a spokesman says.
