One of the most recognizable Liverpool musicians will visit Reno’s Grand Sierra Resort and Casino this week. On Wednesday, Oct. 19, at 9 p.m. come together for a performance featuring Ringo Starr and His All Starr Band, which first formed in 1989.

“I’ve said this over and over again, but I love being in a band,” Starr states in his online biography.

The twelfth, and current, All-Starr Band has been together since 2012.

Known for singing, songwriting and acting, Starr is primarily recognized as a long-time member of hit rock group The Beatles.

“For all his many creative successes, Ringo is and always will be first and foremost a musician, a drummer. Ringo’s candor, wit and soul are the lifeblood of his music,” according to the biography.

In addition to The Beatles’ hits “Hey Jude,” “Let It Be” and countless others, Starr is known for “It Don’t Come Easy” and “Photograph,” released in his solo career.

The artist was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of The Beatles in 1998. In 2015 Starr received the same honor for his solo career.

In 2010 he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, located near the stars of John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison.

“Ringo has published three books; had a stint as a male fashion model and that same year went behind the lens for the Foo Fighters PR shots,” states the biography.

Grand Sierra Resort and Casino is located at 2500 E 2nd Street in Reno, Nevada.
