"No, no, no, he doesn't do it no more" but Ringo is still hitting the stage with his All-Star band. He's 73 years old.

UPDATE (JUNE 9): All of Paul McCartney's June dates in the U.S. have been rescheduled for October in order for the singer "to fully recuperate from the virus that forced the postponement of his recent dates in Japan and Korea," McCartney's publicist announced. The new Texas dates are Oct. 2 in Lubbock and Oct. 13 in Dallas.

Ringo Starr is bringing his All-Starr Band to ACL Live on Oct. 8. Tickets go on sale Friday, June 13 via www.acl-live.com .

The Beatles drummer will be 74 when he arrives in Austin for a show that will take place on the Wednesday between the two weekends of the Austin City Limits Festival. The All-Starr Band for this tour consists of Todd Rundgren, Toto guitarist Steve Lukather, Santana keyboardist Gregg Rolie, Mr. Mister singer Richard Page and drummer Gregg Bissonette.

His old pal Paul McCartney isn’t coming to Austin this year, but he does have stops coming up this month in Lubbock (June 14) and Dallas (June 16). Both of those shows are sold out.
