Graham Gouldman has accepted an invitation to join Ringo Starr & His All Starr Band for a tour of Europe next summer.

Ringo has kept the same band line-up for several years, but wanted a change for the next tour and approached Graham with the idea some months ago.

The All Starr Band also features Steve Lukather of Toto, Gregg Rolie of Santana, Men At Work’s Colin Hay, Warren Ham (whose credits include working with Toto, Donna Summer and Olivia Newton-John) and Gregg Bissonette (Santana, Toto and ELO).

“I didn’t need to think about it,” says Graham. “As I’ve said before, without the Beatles there wouldn’t have been a 10cc, so to be asked to join Ringo’s band is a huge honour and very exciting. It’ll also be a great pleasure to play alongside such esteemed musicians as Steve, Warren and the others.”

The 21-date tour will take the band to Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Luxembourg, Monaco, Netherlands, Israel and Italy.

Before the Ringo tour, Graham and 10cc will tour Germany, Holland and Australia through March and April. with a UK tour being planned for the autumn. 10cc will also be playing festivals across Europe during July-August.
