I, sadly, did not get a tour shirt from Paul. Too much dollars…

I bought one last year, $40, and it was that thin concert tee material that shrinks a lot – I was very disappointed.  Ringo's shirts were much better quality – they did run small but shouldn't shrink, tg I've lost weight!

Half of what I say is meaningless...

Thanks, now I know not to buy one.

^^ @Expert Textpert To argue for the other side, I adore my shirt with the David Bailey pic. I don't think it's too thin. But I also don't plan to wear it that often, I wash it as a delicate, etc.

A rather cranky review of Ringo's concert in Santa Barbara. And they seem to be confusing his age with Paul's.

I agree with Mr Pallidino's comments on 'Kyrie' ("But there was also Richard Page, the unconscionably horrible frontman for the terribly derivative band Mr. Mister. Sitting through a live version of the arch-insipid “Kyrie” is the last thing I thought I would do in my precious waning years."), i left the room when that came on and went for a walk around the Clyde Auditorium.

LOL, that's one of my favorite songs of the 80s. I've been looking forward to hearing it live.

My favorite part was when he scribbled:

Chris Rollie, who led note-perfect reproductions of his old band Santana’s biggest hits

So…did Chris fill in for his brother GREGG?!?!a-hard-days-night-ringo-7

Examiner report on Ringo's show in San Jose last Sunday (13th July). As per the norm if you don't want to know the set-list dont open the link.

Off to see Ringo. Point-and-shoot camera still acting wonky, so I'll just have my cell phone and try to post to pics to Instagram if I get a connection (parlance2).

Back from the concert. My pics are here. Those who are seeing him later this year might be interested in seeing the merchandise table.

My seat was perfect – I was back in the middle section, but I had the first row, so there were no heads blocking my view. And I had the very last seat on the right side, so I had ample room to dance in the aisle and not have to deal with anyone telling me to sit down.

It was a great show! So much energy! It seemed like it was cut a bit short due to the curfew at The Greek, and I wish there'd been far more Ringo up front, but I understand this format works best for him. And it was a thrill to see and hear him on drums.

That said, my favorite non-Ringo moments involved the guy from Mister Mister. One, because I love "Broken Wings" and "Kyrie." But also, he debuted a new song, for which Ringo sat and played bongos. There was no encore, Ringo just went straight into "Photograph" and "With a Little Help from My Friends." Ringo didn't do "Octopus's Garden," which pissed off a lot of people. But personally, I heard everything I wanted – particularly "I Wanna Be Your Man" (albeit in a lower key). I was very surprised to see Ringo play a bit of keyboard at the beginning of "Don't Pass Me By." It was especially touching to hear "Photograph," because I kept thinking of the Grammy performance with the Beatle photos in the background. And he was so darn cute during "With a Little Help," bouncing around like someone half his age.

Edit: I looked at the setlist Ahhh Girl posted, and it appears he hasn't been doing Octopus's Garden on this tour. A bit odd considering he has that recent children's book of the same name. Also, I didn't see an encore listed.

And now I can say I've seen the two surviving Beatles while I had a chance, for which I am ever grateful. Off to bed, I'm wiped!

Examiner article on the LA show. There were a couple of omissions at setlist.fm, so I added a couple.
