Editor's Note: The following are comments from fans concerning the possibility of a tour in 1997. Please feel free to add your thoughts by sending me a note .
These are just a few of my suggestions. Hope you find them of interest.
Jackson, MS would be an excellent spot for a concert stop. No one ever
plays there anymore and everyone in the entire state would flock to see this
show. You'd be turning folks away left and right. I would love to see a
young cat like Ritchie Kotzen playing guitar in the band. Anthony Jackson or
Bill Dickens would make for the coolest bassist ever in your band. And the
guy that I (and a hell of alot of other people too) would pay any price to
see play with your band is a young drummer by the name of Brian Stephens.
Last I heard, he was teaching at a school in Atlanta (the Atlanta Music
Institute or Atlanta Institute of Music or something like that) and
freelancing around there. I used to go see him play everytime he'd come
through with a group. And to say he was always amazing would be an
understatement. That guy was SOLID !! - Locked Pocket for days! Would love
to see him and Ringo duet on the skins, man. If you had those guys in the
band, anybody else would just be icing on the cake.

I also feel that Sibley, Iowa would be a good place to stop on tour. This town is worthless. Nothing ever happens here. The county fair is held here and it is just garbage.
No offence to those country lovers out there but I hate it and the only kind of musical guests we get to play are country. We need some real entertainment. There are many teenagers in this town that feel the same way that I do. This would be a good change for our fair(at least for the kids).
I saw Ringo at Atlantic City last July, and it was the most exciting
experience of my life!!! I was 16 and he did "You're Sixteen" (you're
beautiful, and your mine.) Well, I wish I was his, but I'll settle for
seeing him in concert again. He even pointed at me during "With A Little
Help From My Friends" (I almost died.)It was wonderful, even the five
hours spent waiting in line. Ringo, if you happen to read this, PLEASE
COME TO ATLANTIC CITY AGAIN...and look for the girl with the "I LOVE
RINGO" sign, that's me!
I saw Ringo and All stars at Vienna, VA. July 95.
I was in the front row, center behind the pitt seats.
The highlight was when I yelled to Ringo during a silent
moment and said "We love you Ringo". He acknowledged me
by saying "I love you too, especially that deep voice".
His concert was great. I hope to see him in 1997.
I saw two of the Ringo tours live in Phoenix, AZ. It would be great if he came here to perform again. I've been a fan since I was four years old. I'm thirty-seven now. I've collected all of the Beatles music and all of the solo material. What I would really like is a back stage pass to meet Ringo. I wish him all the best.

I saw the first tour in '89 or '90 in Philadelphia and other than the
fact the band was amazing and fantastic, Ringo outshined them all, he
was the true star and everyone knew it, I couldn't help but cry. Seeing
him was exciting enough, because I'm too young to have ever seen The
Beatles, but seeing him after all the personal and business crap he has been
through, and to see him enjoying himself and his legend was an emotional
and overwhelming experience. God Bless Ringo!!
I would love to see Ringo on tour. I am only 12 and am big fan of his and The
Beatles. My cat, Bambi, loves the song " Yellow Submarine;" he sings to it when
ever I play it. I hope he comes to Merriweather on his possible tour this year
and sings my favorite songs, "Yellow Submarine," "The No No Song" and "It Don't Come Easy."

Ringo is god of all things. He has to play this tour. If I had a
choice, I'd want him to play in Wisconsin. I would want him to
play octupus's garden, or anything he can cook up. Ringo can't
make a mistake, I don't think he knows how. Ringo will always be
the god of drumming rock 'n' roll.
I saw Ringo at the Starlite Theatre in Latham, New York two years ago and it
was great. I would absolutely die to see him with Joe Walsh, Jack Bruce, and
Peter Frampton. I also would love to hear him sing Don't Pass Me By, Act
Naturally, and What Goes On. I can not wait to see him again.
To see Ringo live has always been my dream! Imagine to see him, Paul McCartney, and George Harrison together.. But I realise thatīs out of the question. I really donīt care about the other members in the band. Ringo is the important person, but I think that his son, Zak, should be there, too! I hope that I will see him singing live one day.

I really hope that if there is a tour it COMES TO COLUMBUS OHIO OR AT
LEAST NEAR HERE and that "Weight of the World" is performed.
Also "You're Sixteen", as I will turn sixteen this november and If (god willing) the tour (if it happens) comes to columbus (hopefully) and i was able to go (i better be) I would possibly die (i hope not, i'd miss the rest of the show.) Love,

Ringo Staar was the base of the Beatles. He was the nicest and friendliest
of the four. Keep on touring!!!

I saw the All-Starr Band in Sweden in 93, and it was absolutely great. In
fact, it was one of the most fun-loving, good-rocking events I've been
attending. It would be nice to see him once more. In the meantime it
would be a good idea for the man to record a new album. It would a
contemporary country/rockabilly album with some newly written songs to
perform on the next tour.
