Ringo Starr live in Spain after 53-year absence
24 June 2018 @ 21:07

EX-BEATLE Ringo Starr is back in Spain, having not performed in the country since 1965 – a trip he remembers well for reasons other than his gig with the 'Fab Four'.

“I think we went to a bull-fight, and I became vegetarian that very day,” the 78-year-old legend admitted in Paris on the first day of his recently-launched European tour.

With a 19th studio album under his belt – Give More Love, released in late 2017 – the Liverpudlian born Richard Starkey within a year of World War II's breaking out has 21 dates on his concert calendar, with the first in Spain being this coming Tuesday, June 26 in Barcelona as part of the GuitarBcn Festival 2018.

Next, on Thursday (June 28), Starr moves on to Madrid where he will hit the stage in the WiZink Centre, before heading north-west to A Coruña for a gig on Friday, June 29 at the Coliseum.

His first musical trip to Spain in 53 years will end in Bilbao's Euskalduna Palace with a show on Sunday, July 1.

“I don't know why that happened,” Starr said when asked about his not having performed in Spain in over half a century.
