Ringo Starr’s All-Starr Band opened their latest North American tour with a performance of the Beatles classic “Octopus’s Garden” for the first time. The set was featured when they kick off their tour at the Casino Rama in Orillia, ON, Canada.

The latest tour marks as the 15th All-Starr trek with the lineup of Toto’s Steve Lukather, Edgar Winter, Colin Hay and the Average White Band’s Hamish Stuart. The band’s set list included 24 songs with a mix of classic tracks from each artist’s catalog and ended with another Beatles’ hit “With a Little Help From My Friends” that crossed into the Plastic Ono Band’s “Give Peace a Chance.”

In the past, Starr has performed “Octopus’s Garden” four times while he was touring with his Roundheads collective, once in 1998 and three times in 2005. On his recent performance with the All-Starr, he expressed his pleasure of singing the song again live and even found himself laughing with joy when his bandmates joined in with harmonies.

Aside from the Beatles tracks, they also included Toto’s “Rosanna” and “Africa,” Winter’s “Free Ride” and “Frankenstein,” plus Hay’s Men at Work hit “Down Under.” The band has extended tour dates throughout the summer and fall, with the trek currently scheduled to wrap up on Oct. 20 in Mexico City.
