Beatles legend Ringo Starr has added another show on June 24 at Tel Aviv’s Menora Mivtachim Arena after his first ever show in Israel slated for a day earlier sold out.

The performances in Israel are part of Starr’s “Give More Love” world tour. The concerts include songs by the Beatles, alongside his own solo pieces.

His band for this tour will include Colin Hay (vocals, ex-Men at Work), Graham Gouldman (bass, ex-10CC), Steve Lukather (guitar, ex-Toto), Gregg Rolie (keyboards, ex-Santana), Warren Ham (saxophone) and Gregg Bissonette (drums, ex-David Lee Roth band).

The famed drummer has never performed in Israel before, though fellow Beatle Paul McCartney performed in Yarkon Park in 2008. A planned 1965 show by the Fab Four was famously nixed by the Israeli government, which cited the group’s supposedly corrupting influence on youth.
