The career of Ringo Starr will be celebrated with what claims to be his first major exhibition opening later this year in Los Angeles.
Ringo: Peace & Love aims to ‘propel Starr’s universal message of peace and love’ and will ‘look at all aspects of Starr’s musical and creative life’ when it opens in Los Angeles’ Grammy Museum from June 12th, running through to November 2013.
“I’m honored that Ringo has chosen to work with us to create Ringo: Peace & Love,” Bob Santelli, executive director of The Grammy Museum, has said.
“We are particularly excited to celebrate Starr’s extraordinary musical legacy with the legions of fans who admire him, as well as to introduce him to a new generation of music lovers.”
Previously unseen photographs, letters, documents and original artefacts such as Ringo’s drumkit logo from The Beatles‘ world changing Shea Stadium gigs, his Sgt Pepper’s suit and the jacket worn during the Fab Four’s London rooftop concert of 1969, will all be on display to the public.
After the Los Angeles run, the exhibition plans to go out on the road, touring cities across the world in 2014.
