Pop: Ringo starr

The now bearded and bespectacled Ringo (right) will be running through his solo hits, Beatles favourites and material from his new Vertical Man album at this one-off show. He's joined by such rock'n'roll luminaries as bass-player Jack Bruce and guitarist Peter Frampton who, along with Gary Brooker (Procol Harum), Simon Kirke (Free, Bad Company) and Mark Rivera (Billy Joel's band) make up the All-Starrs.
