Thursday, 18th October 2012 9:01AM

Member of The Beatles and maker of 17(!) solo records - Ringo Starr will head to New Zealand in February for two shows as 'Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band'. This is the first time Starr has been to New Zealand since The Beatles toured here in the sixties and he will apparently perform a bunch of his Beatles hits ('Yellow Submarine', 'A Little Help From My Friends') and material from his latest solo outing, 2012's Ringo. Check out the tour dates and more information on the concerts below, as well as a pretty epic video for 'A Little Help With My Friends' made from compiled Beatles footage (includes moustache close-ups).
