The birthday boy will be welcoming in his friends and fans from across the world as he celebrates his 80th birthday in a unique night of peace, love, and music.

In addition to the music, we’re gathering together for a purpose; as all proceeds for Ringo’s Big Birthday show will benefit Black Lives Matter Global Network, the David Lynch Foundation, MusiCares and WaterAid.
“As everyone knows I love gathering with fans for peace and love on my birthday. But this year, I want everyone to be safe at home – so I called up a few friends and we put this Big Birthday Show together so we could still celebrate my birthday with you all, with some great music for some great charities. I hope you will all join me! Peace and Love, Ringo.”
