Ringo Starr Birthday Celebration: How You Can Watch
If you want to celebrate Ringo Starr’s birthday celebration tomorrow (July 7), but somehow can’t access YouTube, there is another way to join in the fun.
Ringo’s Big Birthday Show will be broadcast on AXS TV at 8 p.m. ET, the same time as the YouTube stream. Other Ringo themed specials–including a 7 p.m. repeat showing of a 2018 episode of the AXS TV series The Big Interview with Dan Rather featuring a conversation with the Beatles drummer –will commence at 10 a.m.
As previously reported, the event will feature unique at-home performances and/or previously unseen concert footage from the former Beatles drummer and his All Starr Band, Paul McCartney, Joe Walsh, Sheryl Crow, Sheila E., Ben Harper and Gary Clark Jr. According to a new trailer for the program, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl will be playing with Harper.
Proceeds raised by the special, which will be co-hosted by Starr and Walsh, will benefit four charities: Black Lives Matter Global Network, the David Lynch Foundation, MusiCares, and WaterAid.
Starr turns 80 on July 7.
