Ringo Starr and His All-Starr Band will play PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh on June 20, as part of a new North American tour.

Tickets go on sale at 11 a.m. Nov. 15 at ppgpaintsarena.com.

The current band lineup features Steve Lukather (Toto), Colin Hay (Men at Work), Gregg Rolie (Santana and Journey), Warren Ham (Ham Brothers Band), Gregg Bissonette (David Lee Roth Band) and Hamish Stuart (Average White Band).

The tour will begin at Casino Rama in Rama, Ontario, Canada, where the former Beatle has performed many times and launched his 2001, 2003, 2006 and 2014 tours. It will include a mini residency at New York’s Beacon Theater, three dates with Grammy Award-nominated Americana band The Avett Brothers and two shows with former All Starr member and blues guitar icon Edgar Winter.

The tour announcement follows the Oct. 25 release of Starr’s 20th studio record, “What’s My Name.” The title track was written by Hay, turning a familiar chant from Starr’s live shows into a rock anthem.

The record is the latest in a series that Starr has produced in his home studio with musicians including Paul McCartney, Joe Walsh, Dave Stewart, Benmont Tench and many others.

Starr also has released “Another Day In The Life,” the third in his series of books with Genesis Publications, with previously unpublished photographs, captioned with Starr’s thoughts and anecdotes.

The book includes photos “taken behind the scenes during historic events, such as Ringo’s acceptance of a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and his return to New York’s Plaza Hotel, 50 years after The Beatles first visited the USA,” according to a tour release.

On Nov. 2, Starr’s “Peace & Love” sculpture was dedicated and will now permanently reside at the Beverly Hills Garden Park in Beverly Hills, Calif. The 8-foot polished stainless steel sculpture replicates the hand gesture Ringo adopted in 1969.
