Ringo Starr’s Peace and Love Birthday Celebration will Beam in From Space
It’s almost that time of year again-Ringo Starr’s birthday!
The Beatle icon will turn 82 on July 7, and he is planning to celebrate with his annual “Peace and Love” global social media campaign.
Starr will launch the festivities in Los Angeles with his wife, Barbara, members of his All Starr Band and other celebrities and musical friends, and everyone will give a “Peace and Love” salute at noon local time. Fans are invited to flash a peace sign and join in the fun on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or Tik Tok at noon.
Among the participants will be All Starr Band members Steve Lukather, Edgar Winter, Colin Hay, Warren Ham and Gregg Bissonette, as well as Benmont Tench, Jim Keltner, Richard Marx, Matt Sorum, Ed Begley Jr., Linda Perry, Diane Warren and the late Roy Orbison‘s sons Roy Jr. and Alex.
In addition, Artemis Music Space Network, with help from the International Space Station, will transmit Starr’s message across the planet and into Earth’s orbit and outer space.
At noon on July 7, Ringo will signal the Artemis Mission Control Center in Houston, Texas to beam his message and music — including his 2021 single “Let’s Change the World” — to the International Space Station, which will relay peace and love messages and music down to the planet and out to the stars as it orbits. In addition, fans getting their coffee tix at Starbucks will hear an All Starr playlist to mark the day.
