Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band is a live rock supergroup with shifting personnel led by former Beatles drummer and vocalist Ringo Starr.

Since 1989, Starr has toured with twelve variations of the band, where "everybody on stage is a star in their own right."[1] Ringo Starr and his All-Starr Band is a concept that was created by producer David Fishof. The band has consistently toured for over two decades, and rotates its line-up depending on the musicians' projects and availability at any given time. Typically at an All-Starr Band concert, Starr will perform some songs from both his solo career and his years with The Beatles, then each band member will take turns performing two to three hits from their own career as well as the occasional acoustic/solo spot. The All-Starrs do not release original music, but every few years a live album from the band is released, generally as part of a new All Starr Band.
