It's also been announced that Hard Rock Cafe locations will air a video message from Ringo on his birthday on July 7. The date marks his 78th year, and the tenth anniversary of his annual "peace and love" event, in which he asks fans to join him in wishing for world peace and harmony.
“I can’t think of a better way to celebrate my birthday, or a better gift I could ask for, then Peace & Love,” says Starr. “I was blown away last year with how far this idea keeps spreading – we started in New Zealand, had people sending Peace & Love from Antarctica, Japan, Costa Rica, India, Russia, Brazil, Europe, London, Liverpool and Hawaii. It was so far out.
“So here we are ten years later and it keeps growing. I want to thank Capitol who have hosted us the last four years, Hard Rock, the David Lynch Foundation and everyone for continuing to help spread Peace & Love, Ringo.”
