Ringo Starr calls on world to celebrate Peace & Love on July 7, 2017.

Music icon Ringo Starr plans to celebrate his birthday Thursday, July 7, in Los Angeles, inviting family, friends and the public to come together in a moment of Peace & Love at Noon. This annual event will take place in front of the Capitol Records Tower in Hollywood.

Ringo, who turns 77 on July 7, also invites everyone everywhere to think, say, or post #PeaceandLove at noon their local time, thus generating a wave of  Peace & Love that moves over the planet on July 7 starting at noon in New Zealand and ending at noon in Hawaii.

The Peace & Love birthday celebration was a concept born in 2008 when the former drummer for the Beatles was asked in an interview “what would you like for your birthday” He replied: “more Peace & Love.”  This marked the beginning of a yearly tradition where Ringo has hosted events all over the world including NYC’s Time Square and Chicago, to Hamburg, Germany and Capitol Records.

“I can’t think of a better way to celebrate my birthday, or a better gift I could ask for, then Peace & Love. How great that this idea keeps growing and spreading. Thanks to everyone supporting it. Peace & Love, Ringo.”

This annual celebration of ‘Peace & Love’ continues to expand every year, embraced by people all over the world. It has also been supported by sponsors, who help spread the message and make these events possible. This year they include Sirius XM (home of The Beatles Channel), Modern Drummer and The David Lynch Foundation.

This year, fans have organized several international locations hosting live ‘Peace & Love’ events, details of which will be listed on Ringo’s Facebook page under “Events.”

Participants don’t have to go anywhere, or say anything aloud. They can just think “Peace & Love,” anywhere you are, at work, for example, or otherwise busy, and know they are still contributing Peace & Love to the moment.
