Join Ringo Starr for his ‘Peace and Love’ 77th birthday celebration

Ringo StarrRingo Starr invites everyone to celebrate his 77th birthday on Friday, July 7, 2017 – either with him in Los Angeles, or virtually on social media.  The ex-Beatle’s Peace & Love birthday celebration has become an annual event and will take place in front of the Capitol Records Tower in Hollywood, California where Ringo will be joined by family, friends and the public to come together in a moment of Peace & Love at Noon.

If you can’t be in L.A., Ringo also invites everyone everywhere to think, say, or post #PeaceandLove at noon their local time, thus generating a wave of  Peace & Love that moves over the planet on July 7 starting at noon in New Zealand and ending at noon in Hawaii.

In fact, you don’t have to go anywhere, or say anything, you can post #PeaceandLove, say it or just think “Peace and Love,” anywhere you are, at work for example, or otherwise busy, and know you are still contributing Peace and Love to the moment.

The Peace & Love birthday celebration was a concept born in 2008 when Ringo was asked in an interview “what would you like for your birthday” He replied: “more Peace & Love.”  This marked the beginning of a yearly tradition where Ringo has hosted events all over the world including NYC’s Time Square and Chicago, to Hamburg, Germany and Capitol Records in L.A.

“I can’t think of a better way to celebrate my birthday, or a better gift I could ask for, then Peace & Love. How great that this idea keeps growing and spreading. Thanks to everyone supporting it. Peace & Love, Ringo.”
