Ringo: Peace & Love To Premier At The GRAMMY Museum® June 12, 2013 and Tour Selected Cities Through 2014
This one-of-a-kind, limited-run exhibit will offer visitors an unprecedented in-depth look at all aspects of Ringo’s musical and creative life – as a musician, artist, actor, and as the man the world knows and loves simply as 'Ringo.' It will also aim to propel Starr’s universal message of peace and love.
Ringo: Peace & Love is both the first major exhibit ever dedicated to a drummer and the first to explore the extraordinary career of the 7-time GRAMMY Award® winner. The scope of exhibit spans Ringo’s early life growing up in Liverpool, from Raving Texans turned Rory Storm, from The Beatles, to becoming a solo artist and then to the All Starrs with whom he is on tour now – this unique collection brings together diverse artifacts, rare and never before seen photographs, documents, personal letters and footage.
The exhibition will feature:
The drum kit Ringo played at Shea Stadium
The drum kit he played on the Ed Sullivan show
Ringo’s Sgt Pepper Suit
The cape he wore in Help!
The Red Jacket worn during the filming of The Beatles rooftop concert
Personal letters, photographs and documents from the Starkey family and Ringo’s days with the Beatles
