If you look at the setlist for his tour last fall (which is with the same lineup) it's about 50% Ringo/Beatles tunes and the remainder are his band. But they're all songs you'll know from the radio so it should still be a blast!

Not bad at all...it depends on venue, though. For the show I'm going to the top tickets were only $120 but on some other messageboards I'm on, people are saying their venues are charging upwards of $250 for the top tickets!

Our venue had VIP area tickets for $85, but they were all gone when I went onto the site 1-5 seconds after they went on sale. Anyway, we got tickets in the next seating area.

Some second-hand sites are selling seat around ours for $255+ now.

@Ex Tex, promise I won't sing over the band. :-)

That's crazy! We ended up getting the most expensive seats, "Golden Cirlce" seats at this venue, fantastic seats, only $120 each. It's a smallish theatre, too, so we should have an awesome view of the stage.

Just to warn you...I never react to anything.  I once brought my car in for service and the dashboard caught on fire.  I just stood there and watched for a minute or so before I said, "Is the covered under my warranty?"  They really enjoyed telling that story at the dealership!

Wiggle away!  I will be standing still and observing.

Too funny, Expert Textpert. I bet they wish all their customers were that calm, cool, and collected.

Ah, the things we learn about people. I will try to contain my enthusiasm a wee bit. :-)

Dude I don't know how people can do that.  I was losing my shit the whole time when I saw Paul both times!!!  Sang to everything and danced etc.  My husband almost matches my energy, it's fab.

When I saw Ringo almost two years ago I moved and sang a little bit, but most of the time I was just stunned that I was seeing a Beatle.

That's how I'd be, I think. And probably so intent on trying to capture each little detail and moment to lock away for future reference, that I'd forget to actually relax and enjoy it at the time. It must be so weird to see someone who you've read so much about in the flesh.

Emily, have you not seen a Beatle before?

I'm still waiting for Paul to come to the UK, but y'know....

Well neither have I yet (until Ringo in July). Hopefully you and I will both get to see Paul.

If Paul tours, I hope he comes to Pittsburgh. I didn't have as much of an interest when he came in 2010, didn't even try to get tickets. Would be great to see him now. Ringo'd be nice too, to stay on topic.

Wiggle warning! I'm listening to Ringo's Choose Love cd for the first time. The song "Choose Love" came on, and the wiggles just started...they just took over.

I don't think I've heard Choose Love yet.  It's on my iPod.

Let us know when you've had a listen and what you think about it. To sort of stay on topic, I wonder if there is any chance he'd sing it for us at the concert?

Send him a tweet. He wouldn't do a Beatle song request but he might do a solo track as he would get a kick out of folk asking for more obscure [non-Beatles] songs of his. Wouldn't do any harm.

I posted the question to his FB page. Ex Tex, do you tweet?

Thanks for that link, Sky999. I see that he has done the song in concert before. a-hard-days-night-ringo-10a-hard-days-night-ringo-13
