June 5, 2012: Last night, a star studded lineup performed for the Queen on her 60th Anniversary Jubilee. Sir Paul, Sir Elton, Stevie Wonder, & others rocked London in a concert that will air tonight at 9:00PM EDT on ABC. We know that Paul performed All My Loving & Let It Be as they showed bits of them on Good Morning America this morning. Set your DVR for this one.
Paul has now made it official. He will be the closing performer in next month’s opening ceremonies of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, on July 27th. That should be some spectacle. It may be Paul’s first performance as a very young 70 year old, which he so graciously turns on June 18th. It doesn’t look like Paul will be touring this Summer, but we can hope he will play some gigs this Fall.
Ringo begins his 3rd consecutive year of All Starr Band Tours in Niagara, Canada on June 14th. He moved up his show two hours so as not to conflict with a high wire walk over Niagara Falls the same evening! We will be seeing him at his first U.S. date on June 16th at the beautiful Bethel Woods, site of the 1969 Woodstock Festival. Can’t wait. His tour ends at the Greek Theatre in LA on July 21st. That leaves us to wonder if he is considering joining his former bandmate on the 27th. Just a thought or a hope!!! Imagine that!!!
