A real coup for Barcelona's Guitar Festival sees Ringo Starr come to perform at the city's biggest concert venue. This English musician clearly needs no introduction – as drummer for The Beatles, his name is instantly recognisable. However, he was in the band for just eight years, 1962-1970, of an extensive musical career that includes singing, composing and, since 1989, performing with his All-Starr Band, which features various musicians successful in their own right. Starr has garnered many plaudits for his skill on the drums, and earlier this year, he was named Sir Richard Starkey (his given name) for his contributions to music.

His appearance at GuitarBCN 2018 is the first time he's performed in Barcelona post-Beatles and sees the Palau Sant Jordi converted into an amphitheatre-style venue; on the programme will be songs from his latest album, 2017's Give Me More Love, as well, of course, as Fab Four classics.
