Smile I Saw Ringo at Radio City!

Hey everyone!
I went to Ringo's big 70th Birthday show last night at Radio City Music Hall.

First of all, the show was sold out; and I had a solo ticket that I bought from a friend of mine. My husband and son bought two tickets separatly that my sister-in law was able to get. The seats ended up being next to each other....crazy coincidence.

Before the show, we looked around the audience and spotted Yoko, Jeff Lynne, Zak Starkey, Jason Starkey (with three little grandsons), Sid Bernstein, Angus Young, and Mick Jones.

Rumors were going around, as usual, that Sir Paul was there. I didn't want to believe it...it would be too good to be true...plus, I didn't want to be disappointed if it didn't happen.

The show started as a Ringo All Starr show, but with even more of energy and emotion than usual. This tour's line-up was Edgar Winter, Gary Wright, Richard Page (Mister Mister), Wally Palmar (The Romantics), Rick Derringer and Gregg Bissonette.

The final song was With A Little Help/Give Peace a Chance and a big group of friends joined Ringo on stage including Yoko, Joe Walsh, Little Steven, Nils, Peter Asher, Jim Keltner, Max Weinberg, Zak on drums, etc...

Then the audience sang, "Happy Birthday To You" while Jason and the grandkids wheeled out a realistic looking Ludwig drum cake ... probably carrot cake. It's Ringo's favorite.

Then, out came the Hofner bass.....
Oh My God!
Then Paul surprised Ringo by whipping into 'Birthday' with Joe Walsh on guitar.
I screamed so loud, I have no voice today.
Here are videos :

Thanks for the details Es! Sounds like it was magic and i can't wait to watch the vids. What a show! You and your family were clearly meant to be there together since those seats were next to each other - that is just too freaky!

You're so lucky. I would have loved to go to that concert. Were there any cameras like to tape the entire concert? Cause I wonder if it will be made into a DVD in the future.

"One of Ringo's great qualities was that he composed unique, stylistic drum parts for The Beatles songs. His parts are so signature to the songs that you can listen to a Ringo drum part without the rest of the music and still identify the song." -Steve Smith
"He (Pete Best) was doing OK, but if you compare it to Ringo, he just did not have that swing. He just did not have that rock. He just didn't." -Klaus Voormann

I must've watched the "Birthday" video on Youtube a dozen times!

I couldn't stop tapping my feet and singing "Birth-daaaaay' as a background singer! :)

It made ME happy to see them together (and happy) :) :) :) :)

It's funny... When Paul came out, I turned into one of those girls from 1964.
First I did this:

Then I did this: (A lot...)

And some of this: and this: and this:
