Alongside a press conference

Ringo Starr is set to stream a special press conference including a brief live set.

With last year's re-issue campaign, The Beatles suddenly became big news all over again. Fans rushed to grab a new copy of their back catalogue, sending the Fab Four screaming up the charts.

Chances to witness a Beatle in action are few and far between, with Sir Paul McCartney recently completed a tour of South America. Not one to be outdone, Ringo Starr has confirmed plans for a European tour this summer.

The genial drummer has been rehearsing with the All Starr Band, who will line up as follows: Ringo Starr, Edgar Winter, Gary Wright, Rick Derringer, Richard Page, Wally Palmar and Gregg Bissonette.

Dates are due to kick off this summer, with the All Starr Band set to tackle their most ambitious European tour yet.

Beginning on June 4th, Ringo Starr has decided to launch the tour with a special press conference. Broadcast online, the drummer will answer a series of probing questions before getting behind the kit.

Giving fans a quick taste of what to expect, Ringo Starr & Co. will blast through a couple of their old favourites.

Due to kick off at 3pm tomorrow (June 1st) you can watch the press conference below...
