Newly knighted rock star Ringo Starr is coming back to the Bay Area.

The former Beatle, who was knighted for his service to music on March 20 by Prince William at Buckingham Palace, will be performing with his All Starr Band at the City National Civic in San Jose on Sept. 28.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. March 30, Ticketmaster.com.

The 2018 All Starr Band features Colin Hay (“Who Can It be Now”, “Land Down Under”), Steve Lukather (“Africa”, “Hold The Line”, “Roseanna”), Gregg Rolie (“Black Magic Woman”, “Evil Ways”), Graham Gouldman of 10cc (“I’m Not In Love”, “Things We Do For Love”), Warren Ham and Gregg Bissonette.

“There is no greater joy for me than playing great music with great musicians,” Starr said in a news release. “Every night we get to play for all those loving people and it makes the hassle of touring worth it. It is a Peace & Love fest and I can’t wait to see you all out there this summer and fall.”

Oh, how Fab! Beatles legend Ringo Starr is knighted by Prince William

DYvEN0UWAAI2YyJ

That’s Sir Ringo to you (and everybody else).

Yes, the beloved Beatle Ringo Starr has now joined one of the most exclusive clubs, after being knighted by Prince William for his service to music on Tuesday at Buckingham Palace.

“It means a lot actually,” the musician told the BBC. “It means recognition for the things we’ve done. I was really pleased to accept this.”

Other rock stars to receive the honor include Rod Stewart, Elton John, Mick Jagger and, yes, Starr’s fellow Beatle — Paul McCartney.

And it’s understandable if Starr was starting to think that he might never join the club. After all, McCartney became “Sir Paul” way back in 1997, while Starr just kept waiting and waiting for 21 years.

It’s unclear why Starr was kept on hold for so long. Sure, McCartney’s contributions to the most famous rock band of all time were undeniable. But he didn’t play drums for the band, did he?

Well, actually, McCartney did play drums on a number of Beatles’ recordings. He’d also fill in for George Harrison on lead guitar on occasion. So, maybe Sir Paul did deserve the honor 21 years prior to Ringo.

Oh, well, This is clearly a case of all’s well that ends well.

And Starr was clearly happy about the occasion, reportedly flashing his signature peace sign as he attended the event with longtime wife Barbara Bach.

So, should fans call him “Sir Ringo” if paths ever cross? He was asked whether he wanted to be known by that title.

“I don’t know yet. It’s new and I don’t know how you use it properly,” he said, according to the BBC.

And what will he do with the medal that accompanies the honor?

“I’ll be wearing it at breakfast,” he joked, according to the BBC.
